I'm about to begin my very first queen size quilt! I'm very excited, since it is a wedding gift for my son! I've been a hand quilter for many years, but this is the first time I will be using a Pounce Pad. My question is: "should I apply the background stencil on the entire quilt before I begin quilting? Or, do I aply the background stencil section by section as I am working?". I'm totally confused becuz I think the chalk will wear off quickly as I am moving the quilt around to quilt. I've always apply my entire background stencil with an invisible marker before I begin quilting - this takes Forever! Help! New gadgets always confuse the heck out of me. I guess I'm just set in my ways! Thanks for any advice or help! FYI, I'm using a beautiful new Moda fabric called "Ancestral Antigue" in the pinks. I'm a teacher so I have all summer to work on this and I just can't wait to get going!!
