Design It, Quilt It: Free-Form Techniques »
Type of item: Home Decor
fabric, prismacolour pencils, textile medium and normal other sewing/quilting supplies
What was your inspiration?
My mum and 2 of my sisters are making each other cushions to encourage us to try new techniques in a small project. I love Cindy's classes and the examples of her work. After the class on stencils I ordered a rather ridiculously large number of stencils and I thought this would be a good project to try a few out.
What are you most proud of?
I like the layering of the stencils. Normally I would have just quilted a filler around the basket, but after Cindy's class I decided to try adding dimension by having the feathered heart go under the basket and into the border. I like the effect asI think it does add interest. Not sure about the colouring in though.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try new techniques by making something small eg a cushion or mug rug rather than just scraps
