    I ran across this website and saw these templates and I had not heard of them before. I'm planning on making several drunkard's path quilts and saw these acrylic templates and thought man that would be a lot faster cutting!!

    Have you used these before?? If so how do they compare to templates sold in stores?
    Thanks!

    Yes! I'm using them right now, I really like them I bought the Drunkards path at Joanns It came with the templates and good instructions with a lot of patterns. Good deal when you use a coupon. Hint! Get a small rotary cutter when using these templates works 100% better. Good luck!

    Awesome! Thanks for the info - and the tip about Joann's carrying them! I do not live near a Joann's but my sister does... I might have to have her go and pick it up. I wonder if they have that rainbow one there too - oooh and that melon one... I am intrigued by a few of them.

    I did get a 28mm rotary cutter for these curved templates. I bought the flip flop block from waterfall quilts and am looking forward to making that one as well :)

    Thanks again for the info!!

    I use the drunkard's path template, and also the 28mm cutter. I purchased it at one of my LQS. Love it, makes it very simple to create those curves!
