I did free motion quilting on the center portion of the quilt with mediocre results. I needed a stencil to mark the stitching lines along the outer blocks, and this quilt gave me the chance to learn a lot about making quilting stencils with my Silhouette machine. Trial and error taught me that I can make a reusable stencil out of freezer paper. I ironed it in place and then I used my pounce pad to mark the quilting lines. My daughter is a whiz at the Silhouette software, and all things computer related, so I hope that I can get her to make a YouTube video to show how to make the stencils.
