Sharon Boggon has been feverishly working to fill the orders for her new set of crazy quilt stencils. She designed them, had them manufactured, and created a very useful pair of PDF files that she e-delivers upon purchase of the stencils.
These stencils are so well thought out. They give the maximum options for marking crazy quilt seam patterns and moitfs in any way you can devise, in four small 3 1/2" X 3 1/2" plastic squares, that have been laser cut for accuracy.
I've found that I prefer to mark my seams these days. It just makes for much neater stitching.
So I've just begun to put them to work.
Here they are on a piece of wool so you can see them. See all the great edges, petals, shapes, and swirls?
I put my two pdfs she sent on a thumb drive, brought them to my local printer, and had 2 sided color copies made on good paper, and then bound with protective covers. I intend to get a lot of use out of Sharon's superbly presented ideas for using the templates.
I've tried out some simple edges on this border strip for my Broderie Perse CQ, and know already that these templates are going to keep me company all summer as I stitch on this large bedquilt.
Here is the link to Sharon's page where she presents her stencils and workbook in much greater detail, with instructions for how to order them.
I highly recommend them! Thank you, Sharon!
