Clover is an American Company, so the inches are more in keeping with the sizes rather than centimetres (see below). You get in the pack x2 rhombus' or diamonds; x2 hexagons and x3 equalateral triangles templates as shown. What is not stated is the sizes of shapes.

The largest triangle measures 12 cm (4 3/4 inch) down each side. The second triangle measures 7cm (2 3/4 inch) and the smallest is 5cm (2in). The largest hexagon measures 5.8cm (2 1/4 inch) on each of the six sides and the smallest is 3.8 cm (1 1/2 inch). The diamonds are equal sided measuring 6.5 cm (2 1/2 inch) and the smallest is 4.5 cm (1 3/4 inch). The plastic is fairly sturdy. You also have the option to use the cut out shapes inside the templates. In the quilting world you have a template with a measured 1/4 inch seam allowance. This would mean that you would have to remove a 1/4 inch from the sizes quoted above which will give you the actual sizes used in your project.

The only thing that worries me is that the templates themselves are not wide enough to use with a roller blade/cutter - I promise you if you do, you will cut off your fingers and nails! As templates to draw around on paper, cloth or any other media for Art, or quilting with a seam allowance already marked these are great. They are also safe for children to use. Being made of plastic of course, they are also washable.

Having recently acquired a new hobby making patchwork items, I ordered these templates to make it easier to cut out the small pieces needed. They work very well.

Sturdy, easy to use and gives you full size template and the seam allowance. They arrive quickly as well so you don't have to wait to play!

I bought these together with freezer paper for the backing of my latest hand-sewn patchwork. They are easy to use, accurate and inspiring.

Having tried both, I find hand-sewn patchwork to be far more relaxing than the machine style.

Funky, fun and chunky. Easy to use, to hold and do not move/bend as your marking up. Fab stuff, just what I wanted!

Excellent and good value for money. They will give me a good start on my patchwork project, without having to spend too much money.

Great little set and simple to carry around. They are slightly flimsy and could be doing with a bit more weight to them but as a template they work out fine.

I invested in a set of these as although I am a keen machine quilter, I fancy having a go at traditional paper pieced patchwork that I can do away from home. The templates are well made and perfect to draw around to make the cardboard shapes exactly the same size. A nice selection of shapes too.
