Stencil Mania Maniac - Part 4

Welcome to Part 4 of Stencil Mania!

One technique that is totally fun is to create a white on white effect. White on white fabrics add lovely interest to quilting and sewing projects. The Branches stencil was used in this example and it came out so gorgeous. I simply applied white paint with my foam roller through the stencil. 


And then of course I had to go and add some color to it. Just so you could see what that would look like. I used some Tumble Dye spray to add the color here.


Some of the stencils just beg to be stitched around. So that's what I did in this little quilt example. Here I used the Secret Garden stencil, which is very reminiscent to quilted feather designs that you see in quilting.


Here's a close up of the free motion stitching around the stenciled shapes.


And another technique I tried with the stencils is reverse applique.  Here I stenciled a row of leaves from the Leaf Specimens stencil.  I used green paint and applied it to a green/blue hand dyed fabric.  I layered another fabric underneath and hand stitched a running stitch around the leaves. Next I carefully trimmed away some of the top fabric so the fabric layer below would show through.


I also used some of the color-layered fabric that I shared in yesterday's post.  It is the orangey one that you see.  I used the Aztec Tiles stencil to create that fabric, along with Tumble Dye spray on color.


Here's a detail shot of the leaves.

  8. I covet that Secret garden stencil! If I don't win it I'll have to buy it. I love what you did with it by quilting all around the shapes.
    I also love the white on white idea. Sometimes we get so caught up in color we forget about the beauty of no color.

    Thanks for sharing all these wonderful stencil pieces with us!
