I am VERY pleased to be introducing the newest member of my designing stencils collection...
The Ultimate Shape!
When I teach my design workshops I often talk about a very simple shape that I use to create overall designs simply by repeating the shape and filling it any way I wish. It was another one of those light bulb moments when I decided I should have this shape cut into stencils!
This designing stencil has been cut into four different sizes, i.e., 2", 4", 6" and 8" to accommodate most quilt blocks. The basic shape is a Cathedral Window with four arches and it also has horizontal, vertical and diagonal guidelines. It has been designed to allow you to use all of the guides or just one or two to create an unlimited number of custom quilting designs for both pieced and wholecloth quilts.
If you want to add an arch to a block and it is larger than The Ultimate Shape, simply center the stencil on your quilt block and then extend the arches to fit.
If you want to add an arch to a design and the stencil is too big, simply extend the stencil past the design as much as you need until the arch fits.
You can use the center lines as guides to fill the block with beautiful free form feathers...or any design you wish.
Look what happens when you use combine two sets of arches!
I got really crazy here and just used a corner of the stencil and repeated it to create this beautiful pinwheel. By the way, I used the angles on the circle Ultimate Stencil to line up these corners and it came out perfect.
I have a 38 page, full color e-book that accompanies the purchased set of four stencils that has oodles of instruction and illustrations showing how you can easily create your own beautiful quilting designs using just this one stencil in any of the four sizes. This book will be added as a separate chapter to the New & Improved design book and will continue to be updated with new designs.
