I had placed an order with The Stencil Company for some quilting stencils. I have to say that they were great to deal with!
One of the stencils that I wanted was on back-order and they emailed me promptly to let me know and to give me options on how I wanted to proceed...I decided to wait for them all together.
I got a bunch of 5" stencils for a Christmas quilt top so that now I can work on quilting it. The quilt is 10 blocks x 10 blocks and I got 12 different stencils so that there will be a bit more randomness in the finished quilt. The stencils that I got for this quilt are:
- Candy Canes
- Holly Berry
- Ornament #2
- Ornament #3
- Snowflake #3
- Snowflake #4
- Continuous Holly
I also bought two stencils for a Bullseye quilt top that I have. The borders will be done in a continuous loop pattern and the bulk of the quilt top will have a rose stipple pattern.
I was planning to start on the Christmas quilt as soon as I finish the String Block quilt I'm so close to being done with. Now I'm thinking that I'll do the Bullseye quilt first since it's more of a lap quilt/wallhanging size. The Christmas quilt is quite large - I think it's about 120" square.
The Randomizer app I have chose La Belle Dame Sans Merci from HAED as my next project. I made a start on it last night. Now I'm on page 9 of the pattern which puts me on the first page of the second row! That bright spot by the horse's head is near the bottom of this page.
