How to Make Quatrefoil Print Cookies

Lately, it seems like quatrefoil is popping up everywhere.  On pillows, clothing, and even cookies.  While quatrefoil may look intimidating, it’s definitely doable.  I promise you can master this print.

Using a cookie projector can make quatrefoil print a much more manageable task.  Here’s a little template to simplify things.  To print, click HERE.

After printing the template, trim to fit your projector, and clamp securely in place.

Use a #1-#1.5 tip to pipe the design.  Consistency is very important for this kind of work.  Too stiff and the lines will break.  Too thin, and you’ll be left with a big blobby mess.  Think toothpaste.  Soft enough to to squeeze, but definitely not runny.

Quatrefoil looks beautiful mixed with prints like damask.  I purchased this damask stencil from Designer Stencils and I love how the two patterns look together.  If you need a little help with the whole stenciling thing, click HERE.

    These might be my favorite that you’ve ever made…e.v.e.r. So I thought I’d try copy catting them. Ha. Very funny. Not that your directions and pictures weren’t adequate or top notch even, but I am just not on your level, at all. How dare you make me think I could even attempt these!! :) In love.
