Machine Quilting Templates (aka rulers) are laser cut from clear 1/4 inch (6mm) acrylic. These tools are designed to enhance a quilter's ability to lay down accurate repeatable design lines, fill, block and border designs. These tools are safe on Long-, Mid- and Short-arm machines (both stand-up and sit-down) and High Shank Home machines with the appropriate ruler foot. Be sure your ruler foot can clear 1/4 inch (6mm) acrylic. If not, consider using a thinner acrylic; 3/16 inch acrylic (Home Machine Quilting Tools) or 1/8 inch acrylic (Design Tools) templates. Check with the manufacturer of your machine to get their recommendation for thickness of templates (rulers). Be sure to use the proper ruler foot for your machine
