    I bought a large stencil with stipples and use a pouce with it. Of course the quilt has to be the right color for the pouce to show. I have both the white and the blue. I like FullLineStencil.com. Their stencils are not cut but have a mesh that the chalk goes thru.

    Patchwork pieces was great. I printed out several.
    Now if they would just come out with a product like carbon paper only it would have to wash out.
    I dont have a long arm with the laser to follow the design. I dont like using paper that you tear away. It has a tendency to wrinkle up.
    Come on industry and come up with a carbon paper for quilting.
    Maybe there is one, anybody know?

    Rose, I don't know for sure, but I seem to remember something like carbon paper that I had to use to mark the darts for sewing? Of course, that would be on the inside, so perhaps they didn't wash out?

    I still have some of that paper. Think I will test it out on a scrap of fabric.

    Well the first problem is you have to carbon the quilt before you sandwich it. Must be a hard surface. It didnt copy very well either without the wheel that comes with the colored paper cause you press hard and it rips the paper.
    Next I will wash it.
