Feeling Creative?

...then get out your stencilling brush!

One thing I really love about quilting is it's scope.... to challenge, delight, inspire and encourage - that's how I got into stencilling, and I haven't looked back.

If you'd like to try something new and you're in Melbourne next month, why not come along to the AQC - Australian Quilters Convention? I'm a tutor this year and my workshop will be exploring stencilling.

This wall hanging, Not Quite Shabby Chic is one of my favourite workshop quilts to teach - its so adaptable, just a switch of colours can change the whole feeling, the stencil roses bouquet in the centre is a really rewarding (and straight forward) piece to stencil.

If you have'nt tried stencilling yet, you're missing out!

  1. This is gorgeous! I never thought of stencilling and quilting in one project. I'm reading your blog for a while now (I'm making the red delicious and just finished the third block) and I'm amazed every time I come back and see your latest project. The red pillow is also very beautiful.
    Do you use ordinary fabric paint or some totally different? I envy quilters who can do one of your workshops, I'm over the pond alas in the Netherlands, so I only can read :(
    Thanks for sharing all your creativity!
    Kind regards,
    Mac (The Netherlands)

  2. Years ago I stenciled on my walls, cabinets, stair risers and pretty much any thing that did not move.........never a quilt though, this is definitely on this year's to do list.
    All of yours are stunning thanks for the constant inspiration.

  3. I had the same question as Mac. What do you use for paint?
    I even went to the quilt show site where you are teaching to see if I could find a supply list so I wouldnt have to bother you with asking.

    I enjoy your blog too. I am also doing your Red Delicious quilt.
