I make my quilt motif templates from non -melty mylar. You can either burn/melt the cut outs or cut them.

I've used freezer paper to make crazy complex quilting motifs as it temp. fuses to the fabric to allow me to trace the motif for quilting. Gently pulling it off to reposition means I can use one paper "cut " for entire quilt. Easy peasy.

I have gotten the template sheets at Hobby Lobby & made templates with those. I was not sure if you were refering to paper pieces or not.

Bumping up for other replies...

I have used a bunch of things in the past for templates, like cereal boxes, the report cover acetate sheets, and most recently fiberglass cut for my NYB blocks, so I do not have to retrace the template.

I use contact paper, over, and over again. Just cut out your design, stick it on the quilt, quilt around it and then move to the next block

Templates for cutting pieces or for quilting?
