    Hi
    I started my first quilting class in June this year.
    I live just of Toowoomba in Q'ld
    Am loving my Monday night classes with the girls. Have made a cot sized quilt & have started a Bargello for my Mum's 80th & am also doing a block of the month as well
    I am about to start looking for acrylic templates as they can come in handy. If anyone has any suggestions on the best place to get them I would appreciate it

    Greetings from New Hampshire.
    Marti Michel has wonderful sets of templates that I like.
    http://www.frommarti.com
    I use alot of Pat Yamen's templates
    http://www.comequiltwithme.com

    For simple shapes like squares and rectangles in various sizes I have my local glass shop guy cut them in about 1/4" thickness plastic. I STRESS accuracy.

    I bought a kit years ago, I think it was made by John Flynn's company, to make my own. It was linoleum like material. I don't know if he still sells it.
    I was only able to make simple straight line shapes - and my glass guy does it better.
