Design It, Quilt It: Free-Form Techniques »
InstructionsI used two templates and a frixion pen to mark the quilt top.
Type of item: Home Decor
hand dyed cotton fabric with cindy's gourmet batting of cotton and a thin layer of wool. I used silk thread, trilobal poly thread, variegated threads and cotton. Also hot fix crystals in the center squares.
What was your inspiration?
I used a lot of Cindy's background fillers, fun and beautiful. I didn't really think that I would like the scribbling, but it is so effective in making the other quilting pop. I still like my "bump, bump, over" feathers though. Only problem is the backtracking...
To answer a question, I posted pics of the stencils I used, from The Stencil Co. And I purchased two pieces of dyed fabric, I posted the other similar dyed piece.
What are you most proud of?
I used this square of fabric mostly to play around with some new templates and threads, but wow, I love the result. Oops, I mean stencils, not templates...
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
remember to use your fingertips (like Cindy said) when doing small circles, etc... I had to keep reminding myself when I found my shoulders all hunched up to used my fingertips.
