    A lot of quilters wouldn't thank you for that! But I like it and use it all the time, thank you!

    Last night I was scanning through a quilt book I had bought a few years back and Lo & Behold they did the same thing with template plastic and applique shapes! Still, judging by the replies, I'm glad I "reminded" us.

    I have been using the non melt template plastic for a while. It doesn't melt but if you get it too hot it does buckle.

    I believe you. I was using EQ and designed a simple quilt using a couple of the basic blocks and used the colors that were in the basic color library. Imagine my surprise when I found the same quilt in the same colors in a magazine. If I had made the quilt and swore it was my design I could have been accused of copyright violation because someone had the same quilt pattern published.
    Got fabric?

    It works great with circles too. Karen K Buckley sells the templates for Perfect Circles and Perfect Ovals. She also has a better quality of mylar template that is on her website. http://www.karenkaybuckley.com/store.php?cat=2

    If you had not seen it done, it was your original idea. Somebody else just had the same idea.

    I have a set of pressing bars that are strips of nylon that were designed for making flower stems and such for applique and stained glass quilts. The card they came on says "W.H. Collins Co, Whippany, NJ" I bought them in a quilt store at least a dozen years ago - maybe 15 or more years ago, now that I think of it. The idea has been floating around a long time, and I don't think anyone can accuse anyone else of infringing. It's sort of obvious as you iron things with a ruler nearby that there are times it would be great to be able to fold right over that shape and iron a crease.
    We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
