"The right tools make all the difference"
 
So you have a 4" border that you want to put crosshatching in but then you discover that the standard 1" stencil is too wide. Look no further. Dorie and The Stencil Company have designed a group of grid stencils that are measured on the diameter, not the straight edge. Both the Square grid and the Diamond grid come in a 1", 2" or 3" wide diameter.  Great for crosshatching or for stitching out any of the connecting designs from Dorie's book Making Connections.
 
She has also designed 2 Triangle grid stencils that can be used for a unique background filler. Or if you love creating the Modern style of hexagons, called #modernhexies, then use this stencil as a guide for arranging your appliqued hexagons.

How to Choose the Correct Size Stencil

 

Blocks: The measurements given on the website are the size of the design. When choosing a stencil, try to find one that is
1/2" - 1" SMALLER than the size of your finished block. For example- if your finished block is 12", then you will need to find an 11" design. If a design is not a standard square, the measurement given will be the larger measurement of either the width or height.
 
Borders: Borders are measured by the width. Again, choose a design 1/2"-1" smaller than the finished width of your border. For example, if your border design is 4" finished, you can use a 3" or 3.5" design.
 
Corners: If you click on the "more info" tab below the design you will be able to see the measurement of all three sides. Generally, the corners are sized to fit half of the same size block. For example, a 6" corner will fit in half of a 6" block.
 
If you have an unusual size area to fill, or are unsure of what size you should get, please contact us for help ordering.
