Custom Quilting Templates

For all of the machine quilters out there… this is for you!

Michele Pettorini of Custom Quilt Templates (CQT) has created a product called a tabbed template that will aid you in creating those long arm patterns you never thought were possible! The templates are amazingly easy to master.

Below are just a few of the designs you can make with the help of the CQT tabbed template!

Here is a picture taken from the CQT website of the template.

They are really easy to use, and below is a step by step guide on how to use the CQT tabbed template: (Please note the block dot is your hopping foot.)
Pretty easy, huh? Well, if you won’t take my word from it at least trust Jenni Ackerman of Taloulabelle’s Design Co. who purchase the ENTIRE SET of tabbed templates. She took a class of Michele’s and immediately after the class called me to rave about the class and the templates. She said once you get the hang of it and get into the “quilting groove” it takes no time at all to finish a quit with these!

The templates are available is 9 different sizes (3”, 3.5”, 4”, 5”, 6”, 7”, 8”, 9” & 10”) for purchase on Custom Quilting Template’s website ( or you make contact Michele by email or phone (515)274-8877.

Also, another great option available is custom orders!! CQT will customize templates specifically for you or your store, but you will want to contact CQT for more information!!

Michele is also willing to come to you for one on one instruction and guidance. Her fee is very reasonable!
