    Have you ever used June Tailor templates? I am talking about the ones that are simple shapes like hearts or leaves and they come in several shapes to just draw around and then hand quilt. I am wondering how you like them. They look good to me, but I want to be sure before I buy.

    I have never used them to quilt, but I have used them for embroidery shapes. They served the purpose well.

    I have no experience of those but I use the plastic pastry cutters that my kids have for their modelling clay - there's all sorts of shapes, hearts, stars, leaves etc. And they were 'cheap as chips' as we say in Britain! :D

    I use stencils for hand quilting all the time. I love them, you can see some of the work on my blog. I have some that I have had for years and have used over and over, Here is where i get most of mine.

    I have a few Taylor, but not many . They hold up fine also.
