experiment with hand made stencils
I thought I wanted the title, Cool Collections on my quilt. I have put words on many quilts in the past but wanted to try something new. I chose the Storybook font, printed out the words to scale on paper. Then traced it on freezer paper and cut out the letters. Ironed the f.p. to fabric and painted with Seta Shimmer paint using a smooth sponge.
The paint went on a dream but the turquoise didn't show enough, the black showed but isn't exciting. Even with quilting it's going to look cheesy.
You never know til you try...
