Initial Run of Quilting Stencils Is Now Available!

melange-of-stencils

After months of work, we are now happy to offer a new line of quilting stencils! These can be used in the same way as regular quilting stencils, but they are actually devised to give you some flexibility to create a number of “offshoot designs” and also to create more detailed quilting designs than a regular stencil could provide. For the most part, they were inspired by designs from the 3rd volume of “Free Motion Fun With Feathers” DVD, but there are numerous designs which were not part of that DVD simply because I didn’t think of them until after the DVD was made!

So, how does this all work? Here’s a quick example. If you start with a design like the following stencil:

PT9

you will be able to stitch out a square feathered wreath that has multiple spine zones that you may fill with whatever design you wish. But, let’s say you don’t want to fill those spine areas with freehand work and you’re wishing you had some stencils that could fill those zones as well. No problem! That’s where these cool “secondary stencils” fit in. Once you’ve marked your first stencil, you remove it and then line up the secondary stencil over the registration marks. Once you mark your secondary stencil, you’ve got a more detailed design. here’s just one example:

PT3H

There are all kinds of design options to choose from-each of those square wreaths has 10 different center designs! We’ve got stencils for 3 different sizes of square wreaths, a circular wreath with multiple spine options, and a feathered heart with a scroll spine! Here is just one example of a square wreath block that has been quilted using one of these stencil sets:

Of course, if you’ve watched the second volume of Free Motion Fun With Feathers DVD, then you know that you could also go back in and hyperquilt that wreath to REALLY make it special! If you’re into feathers and want to see the full line of stencil options, go here.
