Tools used to create this block shown below
12" Arc Template - Part of the Ruler Foot Starter Set
Spinning Wheels #36 - Part of the 6pc Sampler Set Set
These templates will create a variety of designs that can stand alone or be used to offset and echo a specific design.
1) Place stable tape on the underside of your template at locations that would be pressure points when holding the template in place while sewing

2) Determine the desired placement of your template design within the block

3) Place the template at the beginning point of your desired design – make note of the markings on the template that you are using to create a consistent design
a. Make sure that your needle is in the middle of the foot to insure that you are sewing ¼ inch off the template edge
b. Place the ruler foot snugly against the template and pull your bobbin thread to the top
c. Begin sewing keeping the ruler foot touching the template, and tracing around the outside edge of the template
d. Once you are at the end of the template leave the needle down and move the template, line back up on the markings you selected and repeat this pattern until the end of the design, or the end of the block

4) You may also use the dashed etched markings on the template to echo and / or offset your design (see A) by lining up the template on the stitch line you just made then use the selected etching on the template to create the echo or offset design.
