    If you were to do this a second time would you start in one of the outer corners? I'm wondering if you would still have to cut the stencil if you started there instead of around the opening???

      Barbara, when doing anything like this -- stenciling, laying tile, even wallpapering -- you always start in the center. This makes the pattern come out even. If you start in a corner, you risk having a whole pattern piece in the corner where you started, and a just a partial pattern piece at the other corner. Start in the middle and you are guaranteed that all the corners will look the same.
