Here’s an update to the panel I started last week using Shiva Paintstiks & DesignMagic Stencils. This is what I did:
- Stenciled the lime green center panel first using black Shiva Paintstiks.
- Stenciled the two narrow panels of black fabric with an iridescent lime Paintstik
- Stitched the narrow panels of black fabric to each side of the center panel.
- Added a narrow black border all around.
This is a small (approx. 20″ x 20″), contemporary wall quilt (top only so far).
Notice how the design flips on the sides?
I don’t tend to feel comfortable (it’s not natural for me) to be working in contemporary design so this project has been an excellent exercise for me. These colors are also not my usual choices, but I like the piece quite a lot so far. Still need to determine the quilting design…any ideas anyone? Wish I had more time to play right now–I had SO much fun using Paintstiks and DesignMagic Stencils.
