Templates for Precision Piecing

To get consistent, clean-cut shapes every time, start with quilting templates from Fat Quarter Shop. Quilting templates are typically made of hard acrylic and can be used again and again. Anyone who's ever had to cut out dozens of triangles, circles or hexagons knows how much easier the task is with a little help from quilt templates.

Some quilters make templates out of cardboard, but the durability of quilt templates in plastic makes them the frontrunner when producing clean, accurate pieces. Another advantage of using these hard plastic quilting templates is that they are typically clear. This enables you to see the fabric's pattern through the template so you can position it to get the portion of the material you want. For example, if your fabric features cat faces, you want to avoid cutting off half of the animal's head.

Once you've decided on a theme for your quilt and selected the fabrics to bring your creation to life, it's time to determine which quilting template you'll need to get the job done. We have a generous assortment in various sizes and shapes, so you're sure to find the perfect templates for quilting projects large and small.

Tools to Use With Acrylic Quilting Templates

If you're a beginner, you may still need to acquire the tools to use with your acrylic quilting templates. Before you go any further, make sure you have the following:

  • Rotary Cutters: A 45mm rotary cutter will work for most tasks – but if you plan on cutting out a lot of circles or small pieces, consider adding a 28mm rotary cutter to your sewing kit. The smaller rotary cutter handles curves better to make your task that much easier.
  • Cutting Mats: You need a cutting mat to protect your work surface. Self-healing cutting mats are the best because they hold up longer.
  • Rulers: Templates for quilting designs are helpful, but you'll also need square rulers to cut quilt blocks and a straight ruler to cut strips and borders.
  • Scissors: Some stitchers aren't comfortable using a rotary cutter with their quilting templates. If you prefer, you can run tailor's chalk around the edge of your template to create an outline on your fabric, then cut the shape out of the material using scissors. Keep in mind, however, that you might not get as clean a cut using this method.

Frequently Asked Questions About Quilting Templates


We're always happy to help our quilters with information about our products and how to use them. Following are answers to a few questions we've received about quilting templates. Please reach out if you'd like to know more.


What Is the Difference Between a Quilting Template and a Quilt Pattern?

A quilting template is a tool used to cut shapes out of fabric. A quilt pattern is a printable set of instructions that explains how to make your quilt.


What Are the Best Quilt Templates for Beginners?

Novice quilters will be best served by sticking to easy quilt templates. It's simpler to cut squares cleanly than to cut more intricate shapes.


How Do You Care for Quilting Templates?

Like all of the tools used for quilting, templates should be handled carefully. Never leave an acrylic template in direct sunlight or expose it to extremes in temperature that could cause warping or cracking.
