    I just mentioned it because I happed to have some. It's clear plastic so it could be used in a pinch.

    My DH cuts plexiglass for me when I need a template. He picks up the scraps from the hardware store and keeps them on hand for when I need a template. It really works great when I am squaring up my quilt blocks, he cuts the exact size I need, then he marks the center of the square.

    I use this Plaskolite, 8 in. x 10 in. Polystyrene Sheet, 1S08104A at The Home Depot - Tablet to make my own straight edge templates. If I need a template with a curve, and know I'll use it more than once, I'll buy it. I've made a half hexi template, a very mini tumbler and squares.

    I've just found this blog post: Quiltification: New Wave

    She tapes her template on a regular ruler to get the hard edge necessary for cutting. Very clever...
