Peaky and Spike are the two triangular shapes that usually convince people they love our templates. From Marti Perfect Patchwork Template Set R makes a 5" finished square. The 5" size is perfectly suited for today's popular larger fabric prints, and it doesn't take many blocks to cover a bed. Make dozens of different blocks, and try it with our Scrappy Sedona Star [CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE] pattern for a 15" block.
The late Doreen Speckmann, who was a good friend of Marti's, named this loveable pair and promoted them to the quilt world because they can be used to create great geometric patterns. In their simplest form, you'll love the many 10" and 15" pinwheels and star blocks you can make.
Every template has its own permanent identifying number.
The templates come with an instruction booklet that walks you through how to use the templates and gives example blocks to make.
Here's Marti talking with her friend Nathalie DeLarge at the 2015 European Patchwork Show. Nathalie is a teacher in Paris.
The 3" size is in Set C and 4"" is in Set D. People have asked for a larger set, and here it is!
