I’m teaching a stencil class soon using Shiva paint sticks and making a freezer paper template. It was a fairly easy project and hopefully it will give my students some ideas of just what they can do. I stenciled the background and painted it, added the words with my embroidery machine, then quilted it. Took about a day and a half with lots of distractions.
This was an Easter gift from a talented designer, Esther Alieu (www.estheraliu.blogspot.com/). Check out her blog and website. She does some fantastic work and is truly generous with her talent. It was given to her readers as a 7 1/2″ applique block. I blew it up to about 28″ x 28″ in order to produce this wallhanging. I really like the way it came out.
Hope everyone enjoyed a great National Quilting Day yesterday and that you are having a great time wearing the green (or orange) and partying this St. Paddy’s day!
Beautiful, Karen. I’m thinking that you quilted and colored in the design. What did you use? Hope you’re having a great St. Patrick’s day!
Well, I sure am a dunce at getting this blog thing together. I was trying to post from my IPAD and only managed the picture. Now, four trys later, and at my desk top, I have managed to get the rest of the post up and it should answer your “how’ questions. Sorry about the confusion. Karen
