I have been designing stencils for Quilting Creations, Inc. for a number of years. When I am working on a design I try to come up with designs that quilters can get lots of uses from...use different parts for different things or have lots of choices with one particular stencil. Because I am a wholecloth quilter a good portion of my designs tend to work well for those types of quilts.
One line of stencil designs that is hard to find are a variety of large-ish ovals and circles...especially the ovals! I have designed two separate sets of ovals and circles that give you many choices. I intended for my students to pick and choose which ones they wanted in their quilts but many have used them just as they are using all the circles/ovals on their wholecloth and they have turned out beautiful. If you are interested in these stencils, please visit quiltingcreations.com (also a link on my Home Page) and look for NH199, NH198, NH233 and NH234. These stencils will be part of myLinen Ladies Club which will be premiering this fall.
I am busy getting ready to leave to teach at the Sisters Quilt Show in Sisters, Oregon. I'll have my camera handy and will be sharing pictures soon! Cindy
