    i'm handquilting it. i'm pretty stuck on this amish pattern. but it can't possibly be too rare. the woven corner really rocks me.

    i figure i'll lay it out and hopefully only need minor variations to make it fit. start in the corners and work in i guess?

    i'll check out the stencil company, but like i said for this one i'm pretty sold on the pattern from the book.

    thanks again!

    What pattern of cable design do you have. Many from books have been made into plastic stencils. However, it is difficult to advise without seeing the design or at least know the book it is in.

    To the post about double blade knives - You are fortunate in have one of the Xacto double blade knives. They were discontinued back in the 90's. Olfa made one but they also have discontinued the manufacture. Stencils are certainly easier to make with the double blades. However, it is possibl to use the single blade and just do two cuts. It takes some care to get the cut even but it can be done. There is also an easy to cut plastic for stencils. It is called DBK and is a flexible blue plastic. Much easier to cut on this than the stiff plastic.

    the basic cable is a little larger but very much like the double cable design at the quilt stencil website.

    what i truly love is the woven corner design, and i haven't seen anything like it in any plastic stencils.

    the book is called "quilting designs of the amish" by pepper cory.

    i have had that double bladed knife since the late 90's. i got it on sale at an art supply store on yonge street in toronto. curry's!

    cheers

    Many of Pepper Cory's design have been made into plastic stencils. There are only two companies now producing quantities of plastic stencils. Searching on the web should take you to their web sites.
