    I found a new use for my bag of cookie cutters that have not been used for cookies for,well, I don't remember when I used them. They make really good quilt templates for fussy cuts and applique shapes. Now I'm looking around my house in a whole new way to see what else can be used.

    What a coincidence! I was just looking at the quilted circle I cut from my tree skirt and wondering what to do with it, and tracing little shapes with a cookie cutter and cutting them into ornaments came to my mind. All I need to do is bind them after that. Thanks for starting this thread.

    I used to buy cookie cutters specifically for quilting. They were never going to see dough, just fabric.

    We have a vendor that consistently sets up at our biannual quilt show and sells cookie cutters advertising them as great applique templates. She has hundreds of them, and they are very cute. :)

    Oh that's a great idea! I was thinking of making something ornament-ish for the kids to put on the tree this year!

    What a great and creative use for cookie cutters. I can use them all year instead of just the holidays. Thanks.

    They also make good templates for hand quilting; I like to use them around borders.

    I've used a lot of cookie cutters for FMQ and they work great! I've also gotten a number of those little wooden cutouts from Michaels. They're by the paints and about 4".
    Haven't seen these this year, but sometimes they have 10-12" wood cutouts - snowflakes and gingerbread men. They work great too!
