CutRite, Slit 'N Sew Melon Template Details
The two-piece CutRite, Slit 'N Sew Melon Template from Quilter's Paradise, offers an ingenious new way to cut and piece fabric together. This patent-pending tool allows you to quickly and efficiently achieve perfect alignment during piecing. Choose from three different sized templates to best complete your project: 6", 8", or 9". Quilter's Paradise recommends that you use either a 28 or 45mm rotary cutter with a sharp blade; the smaller blades work better in tight curves and when cutting the slits.
When you place your ruler on your fabric, you need to pay close attention to the directions the arrows are facing on the ruler. To prevent wobbling, the template needs to be positioned on the straight of the grain of your material. Once you cut out your shape, go back and cut the slits along the edges of the melon; these slits help line up your fabric when sewing and eliminate the need for pinning.
When you are ready to start sewing your pieces together, you will advance a slit at a time. Line up the next slit from each piece that is being stitched and sew to that slit and repeat until finished. To view detailed instructions on how to use these tumbler templates, check out these PDFs from Quilter's Paradise on the 6", 8", and 9". Each template also features CutRite HandiGrabber material that prevents the ruler from slipping when cutting. The CutRite, Slit 'N Sew Melon Template, is made of durable acrylic and produced in the USA.
