Default fabric handquilting stencil

this idea came to me in a dream last night. Not only the idea, but how to make it! I have been avoiding marking on my quilt tops by making a paper stencil and safety pinning it to my quilt then quilting inside the lines... well, that doesn't work very well... so here is my fabric stencil idea that came to me in a dream...

That's a great idea! I do a similar idea with freezer paper & just pin it on & machine quilt around the openings.

First I have to say I LOVE your realistic bear paw quilting motif to put on a bears paw block! Second, what a cleaver idea, you will have to let us know how it works for you.
