    Selecting quilting stencils

    I am working on a Lucy Boston piece work quilt. I plan on adding a solid color to the sides of the quilt that will fall down to the dust ruffle. How do you select stencils to complement the quilt? I will have about an 18 inch section to quilt along with the Lucy Boston designs on the top of the quilt. Do feather designs look good with cross hatch? I just don't know how to pair designs which will cover that 18 inch section and really complement each other.

    You know who is fearless on combining designs is Annaka (Swedish Leo) She posts a lot of pictures of her work. I think I would look at some designs and doodle.

    I'm not much help, because I would probably be nervous to start too.

      I hand quilt, so this may not help. But I have frequently used feathers in the border and put a crosshatch “behind” it.....not though it (hope that makes sense). I have also used straight lines “behind” the feathers. Both look absolutely fabulous! I haven’t figured out the picture thing, so maybe others will chime in and it may be of more help to you. Best wishes on your finish.....it’s gonna be gorgeous!

          I was curious what kind of quilt this was. What a lot of work! Hardly any had any drops on them

          I could get close to two. I really like the geometric one that follows the shape in the quilt.
