    Stencil size question

    I have made a quilt top that is made entirely of 6 inch 1/2 sq. triangles, creating 6 inch finished blocks. I am wondering what size round or square shaped stencil I should use to mark the top. If I go with a triangular design on each side what size do I choose?

    I was thinking 5 inches for a round or square design but I just don't know.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    The size is all according to what you're doing. If you're adding feathers around the circle, you need a small circle. If it's JUST the circle.....I'd make it so the circle is at least 1/2" from the straight sides of the block.
