Once you have your copy of this free at the crossing line pattern, adjust the size if needed, and decide where the stitches should be placed.
You can place this quilting pattern on your entire quilt top to guide your stitches or you can arrange it where ever you choose.
Remember, these are only suggestions. You know what’s best for your quilt.
Make sure you pay attention to your placement so you don’t lose your guide.
Once you have your quilting cookie assembled, its time move on to the actual quilting.
This is such a beautiful design that we know you might want to use it again and again. That is why it is best to print it out and make your own hand quilting template with a stencil. We describe how to make it here.
Align your template to where you want your lines to be, such as borders or quilting squares.
Mark the template image using your favorite method. This could be fabric markers, pencils, quilt pounce, etc.
Now that the image of the pattern has been transferred to your quilt top in the sections you are working, place your quilting stitches along the lines.
Then move on to the next section and the next and so on until all of the quilting on your top is completed.
When your quilt is quilted, bind the edges with your choose method, and add your label.
Viola! Your quilt is now a finished masterpiece.
