    I see stamps/nameplates on them. Can you trace them on the internet? maybe instructions are available from their home base.

    They may have originally been made specifically for a particular block, however, you can just use them as generic shapes. I would measure each side of every piece and use an permanent marker to write this info on the template, then use them for whatever project you are working on. If they are thick enough, you may be able to use them with a rotary cutter, but be very careful!

    small templates like that, i would trace around them and cut with scissors. safer. Since you have so many, you might try just laying some out and fit together like a puzzle. good luck.

    It might be wise to purchase this set from ebay, just for the instructions. That might help de-mystify the process for the other templates. I found this post. Sounds like the Quiltery was a British company long ago out of business.

    Oh,that is lovely!
    hard to tell from pic the sizes of those templates....whatever you do with them, don't forget to add seam allowance!
