Temporary Spray Baste
by June Taylor

I like to put a "shot" of spray adhesive between the quilt top and the batting along the border edges of the quilt.  This holds the border edges of the quilt in place and I don't have to stitch down the raw edges of the sides of the quilt, eliminating the chance of pleats and puckers in the side borders.

When using templates on the longarm machine, they have a tendency to slip slightly creating an uneven stitching line. I found that by applying a small amount of Quilt Basting Spray on the  back (etched side) of the templates prevents this slippage. 

Due to postal regulations, this product is shipped separately via Parcel Post (ground delivery).  Allow extra time for delivery.

This product can be shipped to US addresses only.

The Circle Template Story

I have been a professional longarm quilter since 1995 and in the last few years I have been working extensively with templates of all sorts – especially circle templates.  While working with circle templates I have discovered a few problems with them.  None of the problems were major – a circle is a circle – but some of the minor problems would cause a lot of in-efficiency in my quilting which would cause me to take a lot more time to finish a project.  As a professional quilter, the longer it takes to finish a project, the less money I make. 

All of the longarm circle templates on the market are good, but, in my opinion, there are some problems with them. 

•  None of circle templates compensate for the 1/4 inch width of the quilting machine hopping foot.  For example, if you have a six inch circle template from any manufacturer and you stitch around it, your finished circle is 6 1/2 inches in diameter.  This may not be a big issue for you, but, if you want a six inch circle to be stitched just inside a six inch block, a 6 1/2 inch circle WON’T fit!
 
Some nested circle templates only have a 1 inch “holding” area and it makes it hard to hold the larger sizes of circles when stitching.  Other circle templates are one large piece of plastic and can be heavy and cumbersome to use if quilting a large space.
 
Almost all of the templates on the market are made from neon lime green acrylic plastic. If you have more than a few templates in your collection, you will find that you are spending a considerable amount of time looking through your templates to find the correct size you need.
 
Most importantly of all there were little or no instructions that come with the templates.
 

With these problems in mind, I “re-designed the wheel” and created NEW circle templates specifically for longarm quilters.

•  ALL of the Longarm University Circle Templates made to compensate for the ¼ inch width of the hopping foot.  If you want a six inch circle, when you finish stitching around my 6 inch template, you WILL have a 6 inch circle!
 
The Longarm University Circle Templates are “nested” with a two inch “holding” area.  This gives you plenty of room to hold the template in position and reduces the weight of larger sized templates.
 
The Longarm University Circle Templates are made from different colors of translucent acrylic plastic.  They are easily found in your template collection.
 
Most importantly, Longarm University Circle Templates include  a 28 page, step-by-step, photo illustrated instruction manual!

The instruction manual contains Tips and Tricks for working with templates and shows how to create designs that can be made from circles including- Circles All Over, Off Set Circles - a design that is sometimes called Wine Glass or Orange Peel, Clamshells, Stacked Clamshells, Border Designs, Block Designs and 11 pages of instructions for stitching  Baptist Fans!
 

The Longarm University Circle Templates are available  in two different sized sets:

SET A, a seven (7) piece template set with EVEN SIZED circles that have finished sizes of  2 inches, 4 inches, 6 inches, 8 inches, 10 inches, 12 inches and 14 inches.

SET B, a six (6) piece template set with ODD SIZED circles that have finished sizes of 3 inches, 5 inches, 7 inches, 9 inches, 11 inches and 13 inches.
