Traditionally, quilters have used homemade or acrylic templates for Winding Ways. The curves in this design are much easier to sew when you print the shapes on fabric, thanks to the precision corners and matching marks. In this special case, we want the dog ears to help line up the seams, but there is a line so you can trim them off after sewing.
