    Thank you sooooo much for that site. I have been making my own, which is a bother. And the prices are very reasonable.

    after you finish your top and place all 3 layers together, you then quilt them all together, if you hand quilt, which I do. These are made of plastic and have slits in them so you can mark a desiqn on your top that you wish to quilt. Sometimes a pretty feather or flower or sometimes just grids. It is up to you how you want to finish your quilt. If you machine quilt you can also get stencils for that. Hopefully my order will come tomorrow and I will Post a Picture.I hope this wasn't too hard to understand. If you need more help just let me know :-) always glad to help!

    I was wondering the same thing. Didn't quite grab the concept of using stencils, is that when you use that Pounce stuff? Can you tell I'm a beginner, lol?

    Sondray, You can use "pounce" or anything else to mark your top as long as it will brush/wash off. I like to use the "blue" pen that washes out with a spritz of water. I always get chalk everywhere (and I do mean everywhere) so the pen is a better solution for me. Of course, it take longer to mark... :roll:

    The stencils have slits in them where the lines go. you can mark with chalk but I am too messy with it also. I use a Fons and porter mechanical quilting pencil. It comes with dark led for light cloth and white lead for dark cloth. You can also use a pen that disappears shortly after marking. I like using them if I am marking as I quilt! hope this helped some, I will post pic when stencils come. You can also use a light box to mark quilt top. Just put a light under glass table top and place design on top of table, then lay quilt top on top and the design will shine through. You can use anything for a pattern. I have used plates for curve quilting and made shell design from spools or small glasses. Any where your imagination takes you is alright! :D Ninnie in NC

    OK, girls her I go! stencils showed up about 8:00 last evening and I did a shouting happy dance! Glad there are no close neighbors here. Here are the pictures I promised One is just of the stencils and the other has a black square showing what it looks like after marking a stencil.The blue shows what it looks like after you quilt one. I am definitely NOT a teacher! heck, I've never even gotten to take a class! (no classes here in the boonies) :lol: :lol: So to the quilting police,have mercy, all stitches are not created equal, no matter how hard I try. If any questions just pm me. I love to share the love of quilting! Ninnie in NC

    My New Stencils! Think I'll get out some of my UFOs!

    Thank you for posting the pics! I can't wait to get the ones I ordered and the prices were so good that I wasn't sure what they were going to look like.

    I ordered the flower border like the one you have quilted with the two ribbons going through it. I also ordered the large corner motif with the flowers and ribbons and the love birds with the ribbon AND the double ribbon. I think I will use them all in my Giant Dahlia.

    Hello everyone,

    I have a question about using quilting stencils. I have never been serious about hand quilting, but have bought stencils thinking that one day I would take a stab at it.

    How do I start with marking my piece? I have the chalk pouncers and promptly threw them away - can't stand them.

    Do we put the stencil where we want it and draw the marks on with a special pen?

    Please let me know what you all do because I'm at a total loss as to what to do. Thanks! Cathy Oh!
