new to quilting...need help

I started quilting 2 years ago and made simple block quilts. When I machine quilted I stitched in the ditch. This time I would like to try a stencil pattern on my quilt to give it a better pattern look.
I do not own a long arm machine, all of my sewing is done on a Janome regular machine.
Do you have suggestions of which stencil to buy that is easy for a beginner? Do many of you use the stencils? Any suggestions would be very welcome. If there are negatives to using stencils I would like to hear that advice as well.
I made the purple quilt for my daughter and her husband, I inserted their wedding pictures in it. The next photo is blocks made for my current quilt. This is not the final layout, simply there to show a friend what I had done so far.
Thanks for your help in advance.
