Grids are great to use as backgrounds for your applique quilts as well as others quilt designs for fills and blocks. Using a Pounce Pad to transfer grid lines is by far the easiest and quickest way to get those lines drawn. This particular stencil also has a notch at the half inch mark around it so you can easily pounce the one inch grid then line up the lines again with the half inch marks (jog it over and down a half a step), transfer it again and have a perfect half inch grid.

The nylon mesh stencil is so easy to use. There is no right or wrong side, just position the stencil, swipe the Pounce Pad over the top, lift off and sew!
This design is the base for many different designs. Using this stencil gives you training, consistency and confidence particularly if you're fairly new to longarming.
How to care for your Full Line Stencils
They are tough and can be transferred countless times. If they begin to get a little dusty fro the chalk, use a damp cloth to clean them. A dry microfibre towel works really well. If you're using the Ultimate Pounce Powder you can actually iron them to clean them! Don't iron if you've been using other colours of chalk (Pinhole Quilting only sell the white)
How to store Full Line Stencils
You can punch holes into them or put them in sheet protectors. For the larger stencils you can store flat or roll them up as they don't retain much memory and can be ironed to get rid of creases.
