You can place this quilting pattern on your entire quilt top to guide your stitches or you can arrange it where ever you choose.

Once you have your quilting cookie assembled, its time move on to the actual quilting.
This is such a simple design that we know you might want to use it again and again.
That is why it is best to print out the free crossing squares line pattern and make your own hand quilting template with a stencil. We describe how to make it here.
Another possible suggestion (if you don't mind picking the plastic off afterwards) is printing this free crossing squares line pattern directly onto some press and seal.
It's easy enough.
Just take a sheet of press and seal, and cover a piece of printer paper with it. Make sure you're only covering the side that will be printed. Fold over the edges to the back of the paper if you must.
Then you can print the pattern directly onto the press and seal.
Once, the image has been printed, the press and seal can be removed from the paper. Then place it onto your quilt, directly on where you want to stitch.
Just remember if you are going to use this method, the press and seal will need to be removed after your stitches are made. It can be a little tedious!
Align your template to where you want your lines to be.
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.
Tada! Your quilt is now a finished masterpiece.
