I have been having a little play with some things I bought last week at the Textile Festival
These little stencils and Starburst sprays come in a large range of shapes and colours. I got these from the Thread Studio but I also saw the stencils at Unique Stitiching.
First I placed a stencil on a piece of hand dye on a paper towel
Then I sprayed it with two of the sprays
I ironed it dry as I was impatient to move onto the quilting. It didn't take long at all and probably would have dried in about 5 minutes if I had let it.
Then I quilted around the circles in a metallic thread and a variegated one.
Sorry the colours are a bit odd but the sun set while I was doing this little exercise.
The one at the top is the one I did yesterday using the same technique. Such fun. I will be doing more of this at my Textured Treasures workshop at Be Creative by the Sea in Coffs Harbour next week and of course in Orvieto in September.
