When it comes to combining patchwork templates… Size does matter!

Made Studio Textiles English paper piecing patchwork templates are measured along the side edges. For example the 1½” Hexagon has a side edge that measures… you guessed it, 1½”. Specifying the side edge measurement means you will know you can use it with the 1½” Triangle, the 1½” Diamond and the other shapes in the 1½” Range that have side measurements of 1½” and 3″.
