Monday Morning Design Wall 12/15/2014 Ultimate Stencil FUN!!

Good Morning!  I have had the best week, spending two days up in Paradise, California at the Morning Star Quilts with my favorite teacher, Cindy Needham!  I had purchased her Ultimate Stencil back in September but had not had the courage to even open up the envelope.  So I brought up a quilt that I wanted to design a quilting pattern for some large empty squares and just DID IT.   There is a very nice handbook that comes with the stencils so it is almost foolproof!

 I came up with a nice pattern and even decided on how to accent the blocks.  I left in the registration marks that I used to draw the blocks.     I am now trying to figure out how to quilt my borders, using both the stencils, see below.  I think I like the look of the square pattern and will do something with straight lines.

I love the arrow look of the corner and will look into that shape!   Remember to check out the rest of the design walls on Judy's blog.    Last, Happy 20th Birthday to my wonderful son Nicolas, who I was lucky enough to spend two evenings with while enjoying quilting during the day!  Win, Win.
