I tend to do a lot of geometric line work in my quilting and who wants to measure out and mark. These stencils make it so easy...They come in 3 widths (1", 1.5" and 2") so there is always one that is the perfect fit.
I use the white miracle chalk and apply it lightly with a cheap foam brush. I don't use a pounce pad as it tends to get too messy.
You can still see it even when quilting on white. It usually helps to turn your machine light off.
I can then just quilt away and wipe the chalk off with a slightly damp cotton cloth as I go.
If you are a little heavy handed with the chalk, any chalk residue will disappear with a warm iron or steam.
There are a number of other configurations available. These two I use occasionally but I reach for my line stencils every week.
Thanks for stopping in. This posting I will be linking up with Really Random Thursday, Free Motion Quilting Friday and Thanks Goodness it's Finished Friday. Be sure and check them out and all the other bloggers who link up.
