    I'm hunting a leafy vine to be used on a border strip on the quilt I'm working on ("Meadow in Bloom", Joann Fabrics Quilt Block of the Month series) and apparently having trouble figuring out where to look (I'm a beginner). I am totally incapable of drawing anything even remotely recognizable, so drawing my own isn't an option.

    Suggestions, links, etc., gratefully received.

    Are you looking for an applique pattern then or what?

    No, a hand-quilting motif.

    Search for quilt stencils & you will probably come up with some.

    Most quilt stores will have a stencil that you could use and they might be able to give you suggestions as to how you might do it. I don't recommend JoAnn's as I don't think they are helpful rather a good privately owned quilt shop where the clerks or owner's are skilled in quilting. Good Luck.

    I have also used stencils found in the decorative arts dept.
    Also have made my own.
