To mark and cut your fabric into units lay the well-ironed fabric on a flat surface wrong side up and place the template on top of the fabric being sure that the template grain line lies parallel to either the lengthwise or crosswise grain of the fabric. If using a scissors, trace the outline of the template onto the fabric, using a pencil or fabric marker that makes a very thin line. Then cut out the units, being sure to use very sharp scissors that you have reserved for use only with fabric.
To save time and eliminate the need for tracing the template over and over, use a rotary cutter and mat. Rotary cutters come in various sizes. The small ones are good to use when cutting curved patterns whereas the large ones are excellent for cutting large, straight lines and for cutting through several layers of fabric simultaneously. Once again, lay your well-ironed fabric wrong side up on a flat surface on top of a rotary mat to protect the surface, place the template on top of the fabric, and proceed to cut using the rotary cutter. No need to trace around the template. All you need do is cut around the edges of the template with the cutter.
Joomlajunkie.com is an example of a "club" website where you can become a member of joomlajunkie and then you will have access to several different templates with unique and stylish features and layouts. The hits per layout are absolutely amazing, so you know that that same layout and style is definitely being used across the internet.
Curves are a bit different. A collar will make the bit cut a slightly larger radius on outside curves and smaller radius on inside curves. The result will be a finished piece slightly different from the template, but not consequential. To find where the bit will actually cut, run a pen in a loose bearing with the same offset as the collar along the template to draw the layout line.
Basically there are two types of templates; exclusive (copyrighted) templates and non- exclusive (non-copyrighted) templates. An exclusive template gives you ownership rights over the template whereas a non exclusive template does not give you ownership rights but only usage rights. Exclusive web templates are a bit costly and will ensure that the template is not resold to any other customer. You may use the template as your like and even resell it to other customers. A non-exclusive template on the other hand is cheaper and gives you only usage rights over the template. This means you can modify the template as per your needs but cannot resell them to a third party. Non-exclusive templates also mean that the same template can be resold by the template provider to more than one customer.
You can also purchase premade templates. When purchasing ready-made quilting templates it is best to select those made of sturdy acrylic that have been laser cut which ensures precision. These premade templates are available in many shapes and sizes both online and in quilt and craft shops. They will save you a great deal of time over using homemade quilting templates, will be 100% accurate and will last for a very long time.
