When I got ready to quilt this quilt, I wanted to have a different motif in each square and rectangle. But I didn’t want to have to go to all the effort of making so many stencils.
It had been awhile since I had purchased any, and I discovered that many quilt shops do not carry them anymore. I guess just not enough people quilt by hand anymore. I did manage to find a few at JoAnn’s, but my new go-to course is now The Stencil Company.
Not only do they have a lot to choose from, they are so much less expensive than anything I found at a brick-and-mortar store, even after S&H is added.
So when I was ready to start quilting my latest project, I ordered several more. These are just three.
I’ve learned that if it says it’s a 3″ motif, it is really 3″ — as opposed to a design that will fit in a 3″ square with some room to spare.
Here are the spaces I’m quilting currently.
