    Need help, please!

    I purchased a QIAD Delectable Mountains Quilt book at Goodwill. After getting it home, I realized that special templates are needed to cut the mountain pieces. They were supposed to be included in the book, but were not with this used book. DH and I think we have figured out the template sizes by looking at pictures of them in the book, but we want to make sure we have the dimensions correct before I cut everything out. If somebody has this book and templates, could you please pm me and let me know what the measurements are. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

    I have this book and it came with a plastic Template in the back cover.
    I hope I can explain this correctly for you.
    The left side of the templet (they called it a ruler) is 8m 1/2" long.
    The top is 2" and the bottom is 7 3/4"

    Thanks for the quick reply. Our guess was 1/4" off on the 7 3/4" side and 1/4" off on the 2" side. That would have made it a little off on finished size. lol

    Can you tell me how far down the marks for placement on the 4 1/2" squares is? It looks to be about 3" across and
    4 1/4" up and then a line over to the angle side.

    Thanks, Norma

    I googled and found this technique where you don't need a special ruler or template

    Thanks to the measurements sent to me by Virginia, DH was able to cut an acrylic template for me. I love this board! If you have a question or a problem there is always someone to come to the rescue. Thanks, Virginia.
