So so easy to use! Just love it. One of the best quilting tools, I've purchased in a while. Here is a picture of the chalk outline from using the stencil.
I used Countess Machine Quilting Thread in the Dolphin colour. First time I've ever used this thread. It seems quite nice and the price was good, 500 yards for $4.99 at one of my local quilt shops. It's the closest one to my work so while I was on lunch break, I took a peek in to see what thread I could find that I would like. It is a medium gray which I think went perfect for the inner border. Light enough to see but dark enough to blend :)
So that is my progress so far. Not sure what to do with the outer border yet. Any ideas? I am liking the FMQ but not sure if I should continue that for the outer border or not. I do have a feather stencil but I'm not sure if I'm daring enough for that one yet :)
