Hard to believe that I have never used a stencil for hand quilting. I decided for whatever reason to order a baptist fan stencil and try it. Think I might just like it. I've never marked a quilt with chalk either. All these years to try something new. It wasn't difficult and I like the look.
Thanks so much for all the warm comments. Means so much. This morning was more difficult than I thought, thinking back to last year when Jim left the house for the last time, with the doves leading the way.
