Have you seen these great new templates? They all work with 2 1/2" strips. There are quite a few more, but these were the ones I thought would work great. There are hexagons, 45 degree triangles, 60 degree triangles, a mini Dresden plate, and one called Mini Fat Cat that is a tumbler. They also have one that makes a 6" 54-40 or Fight block. We've played with a few and they are so much fun. You can use them to hang on your key change and if you have a quilting emergency, well, you've got a template you can use! Quilting emergency averted!
