This is the stencil for the borders. Imagine putting quilting eight of these at each end with several down the middle also! It took me quite a while to work out a method for quilting this so that I didn't lose my place. I am sure that the first few of these don't look very good.
This is what the stencil looks like chalked onto the border fabric. I am really going to have to wash the chalk out of this quilt! There must be a ton in there.
This is the stencil for the setting triangles. It is a simplified version of the other stencil. And yes, it takes a few hours less time to quilt.
You can't really see this well, but it is a finished setting triangle. You can almost see it because the chalk still kind of shows up.
I am sorry that the pictures are a little washed out, but I was using my phone's camera. And the flash reflected off the stencil plastic. I'll do a better job with the rest of the Centennial block pictures. I think.
