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!
