Synopses & Reviews
Guests will be wowed by the fabulous appliqué designs on your quilts. "I don’t know how she finds the time to make these intricate patterns," they’ll murmur to one another as you turn to serve the canapés. You’ll smile just a little smile to yourself, because only you know the secret: That isn’t appliqué, it’s stenciling, created with simple techniques and a little fabric paint. You get the look of traditional appliqué, German papercutting, Hawaiian appliqué, sun printing from nature, and exotic printed fabrics using just freezer paper, template material, and paints, dyes, or crayons. "More cheese puffs, ladies?" you’ll say as you turn back to your guests. Don’t worry...your secret is safe with us.
Customize the full-size scalable stencil patterns with paints and items from nature for use in simple pieced quilts and wearables - fun for all ages!
