Savvy Stencil Appliques
When you think of quilting stencils, the first thing that comes to mind may be using a stencil to traditionally accent and embellish a quilt. You place the stencil over the quilt top; transfer the design to the fabric by marking along the design lines; layer the backing, batting and quilt top; and hand or machine stitch along the marked lines. Now it's time to think outside the box! It's time to explore using stencils in another, very savvy way- as a source for applique designs.
