Quilting and the weaving of tapestries have recorded events throughout history. Today, it's an art form that still allows us to weave a tale with the images we love and the colors that inspire us.
One of the first sewing project my Grandmother set me to do was to build a quilt. I still think of all the hours I spent sorting through the fabric remnants for each perfect square.

You may be wondering about how these free quilting stencil patterns are going to work since you will be printing them from your computer on plain paper. Well, I recommend that you cover both sides of the paper with a protective coating such as clear shelf liner before you cut out the stencil design. If you don’t have any clear shelf line handy, try running strips of clear wide packing tape over the entire page overlapping each edge slightly.
The idea is that you want to be able to clean off your stencil after using.
To position your stencil, place it in the middle of your border and make any necessary adjustments as you go around the corner. A little hairspray on the back of the stencil will make it temporarily sticky so you can mark the top easily.
If you don't want to mark your quilting stencil patterns directly on your fabric then mark the stencil design on light weight tissue paper, tracing paper, newsprint or lightweight tear-away stabilizer. Pin this to your project and sew on the marked lines. Tear the paper or stabilizer away when done. This is also a good method to use if your fabric has a print, keeping markings from showing up.
Use a stiff brush (a small head stencil brush) to remove chalk marks from the fabric.
To print any of these quilting stencil patterns, just right click on the image and select print or save if you're on a PC or drag it into a document if you're on a MAC. You can change the size of the stencil on any copy machine.
