Stencil Stitchout Tutorial

I had a request to share the stitching path I used on the Anita Shackelford feather stencil , I used in my last customer quilt.  I tried to just draw it out on paper, but that wasn’t making much sense.  My son helped me make a little video tutorial.  After we were finished, he told me he should have been standing on the other side of me…oh well.  I hope you can get the gist of it ok.  Also, I would like to state that this may not even be the BEST way to stitch it out.  It is simply the way I figured out to stitch it that seemed to work best for me.  Maybe next time I actually stitch it out on a quilt, I can get my son or husband to video that.  That would be more fun, wouldn’t it?

  1. Thanks, Randi! You did an awesome job with the tutorial!

    I am such a visual person and being able to see you draw that out was great.

    I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it!


  2. Randi, it was a great help seeing how you did that. You drawing on it did the trick since the view was sometimes blocked. Thank you so very much.


  3. Great video! Kind of a ‘duh’ moment for me. : ) You make it look so easy. And yes, it would be fun to see you quilting the stencil….

    So, what did you customer say about her beautiful quilt with this stencil? Was she just blown away?


  4. that was great. Do you trace it on with a lite box?
    It just is great to learn all these things.
    I’m excited about using some of these tips.
    thank you again,
    Be Blessed,
