Using quilting motifs once they are chosen

I promised more pictures, so here is the template I made for the stylized leaves…very 1960’s in my mind’s eye. Using a single-edged Exact o knife to cut out my stencil, I can make the template I need for this quilt. I use chalk to mark the top as I go because the chalk does rub off easily but I also don’t have difficulty cleaning the quilt top after the whole top is done.

The stylized flower comes in handy for the cornerstones and other squares in different blocks. I am using a glass baking dish to create the petal design for the outside border.


The fun comes with free-handing vines in places that look empty or harsh in the blocks.

I have just started a stylized vine in the light portions of the spool blocks.It’s growing on me.
