Before the holidays I was contacted by Cindy, owner of The Stencil Company about hosting a giveaway of hand quilting stencils. She is seeing more and more machine quilting (they sell those stencils too) but she doesn't want to see hand quilting to disappear.
Although I do both I was willing to help promote their wonderful stencils. I bet you've seen them at shows or have a few of their stencils in your sewing room. They have been in business for 30 years!
The catalog and online presence is huge and I had a hard time choosing a few stencils.
But this is what I chose from their catalog. Read through my blog and see what you need to do to win some just like it!
I'll start with my largest hand quilting project. Beyond the Cherry Tree quilt.
I haven't hand quilted in awhile so it takes a little time for me to warm up.
Iron to remove marks.
I got a little carried away with my photos.
I love this quilt!
If I did every other stencil line the arcs would be 1" apart, which personally is good.
If you want to have close lines together (1/2") you could use every line. One stencil- 2 ways!
When I use my other stencils I will also show you on my blog, but because I am the world's slowest hand quilter I will not make you wait for me to use them all!
Leave a comment and 6 lucky winners (yes SIX!) will receive the same 4 stencils I ordered! Isn't that great!? I'll draw next Tuesday, March 3.
If you do not hear from me to say you are in the drawing that probably means you are a no-reply commenter and have not left your email address either. You will not be eligible to win.
On my side bar is a post about how to fix it. Feel free to leave me a test message, as well.
Good luck and Happy Monday!
