    How many of you quilters use stencils for your designs? This is the first time I've tried it. I traced the pattern onto the quilt, then free-handed the quilting. I then filled the rest in with micro stippling. I like trying new things!

    Very Nice. I haven't tried doing that yet. What did you use to mark your quilt?

    I used a fabric disappearing marker. It disappears after 10-15 minutes after application. It comes in handy.

    Beautiful work, I hope to try it some day when I get more comfortable in my skin with all this. Looks like you've mastered it already.

    I'm not nearly this talented, but I do all mine on my regular sewing machine. :D My machine says that it can do a MUCH better job if it only had a much better operator!! :lol: :lol:
