Brimfield Block Center Window Acrylic Template comes in two different seam allowance options: 1/4″ or 3/8″
This is the add-on center acrylic template for the Brimfield Block. The four other acrylic templates you need to make the entire Brimfield Block are sold separately. This center acrylic piece allows you to have a fussy cut center to your block. In the original Brimfield Block layout, the centers of the block are “open” to reveal the background fabric of the quilt. By using this template, your blocks will not have an open center. You can purchase the 4 other acrylic set pieces here. And you can purchase the Brimfield Block EPP papers and Brimfield Block pattern.
The window center acrylic not only will allow you to audition your fabric for fussy cutting (think of the acrylic edge as a frame to help you isolate your motif options), but because they are window or hollow on the inside, this means you can trace your own papers. Of course you can always just purchase a 12 pack of the optional center papers. But being able to just trace your own is nice. The outside edge of the window acrylic is where you trace to have your fabric PLUS seam allowance.
A word about our shipping. We refund all shipping overages greater than $1. As the number of items in your cart grows, unfortunately, so does our shipping estimate. Our shipping calculator tends to overestimate actual shipping costs, especially for our international clients. Have no fear – we are aware of this. When we package up your order and generate an actual shipping label, we always refund shipping overages greater than $1. So while this might initially seem daunting, trust that we do NOT wish to profit off of the shipping expense. Kindly drop us a line if you need an exact shipping quote beforehand with your shipping address (not just zip code) and we will let you know.
