    Great Template Material

    Bought myself an iPod Touch and four iTune cards. Was going to throw the cards out but realized they would would be perfect for making templates. Used kitchen shears to cut them up and sure enough really great templates. Hubby came up with the idea of laying them together to form a square, then using contact cement to glue strips of sandpaper to them to make a bigger template, the sandpaper holds them together and provides grip at the same time.Works like a charm!
    Quilt outside of the box!

    If you're not a Vegan, and don't mind odd things in your dishwasher, the clear plastic sheet thingy (sorry for the terribly technical language) in the package of sliced bacon makes good template material.
