I purchased this acrylic quilting template for myself. I have previous had a couple of different acrylic templates in the past so knew what to expect. Once you get used to the cutting techniques, which were shown on the label of the template I received (if they are not you can look up online how to use the templates if you are unsure). You can use this to cut triangles that are a finished height of 1" to a finished height of 6" and it goes up by 1/2" increments. It has a 1/4 seam allowance from the cut points. There is a line showing you were to cut and what the finished height is (solid line is cut line, dotted line is finished height).The half triangle is great as I cannot count the number of times I've made a patchwork quilt and cut just triangles and then went back and cut half of the triangle away on the sides. Saves material and matches up to the main triangle template Works best when you use the template to square off fabric and line up the cut line (whichever you choose, as it is clear you can choose any dimension between 1" - 6" to an outside edge and then cut around the remainder of the template. Easy to use, hard and works very well with a rotary cutter. I would highly recommend to someone looking to make patchwork a little easier! I will definitely purchase more of the Simplicity templates in future.
