The new year will be here in just a few short days, and I can’t think of a better time to introduce our new Bubbles DesignMagic™ Stencils. If these don’t remind you a bit of champagne, I’m not sure what will!
I started this design and then handed it off to Matthew, my graphic designer. I liked it, but it needed something, and I couldn’t quite seem to figure it out. When I got the design back from Matthew, my first reaction was “Wow – Swiss cheese on steroids!” I made up a sample, loved it, and sent it off to the stencil cutters. Now how cool is that!
Bubbles DesignMagic™ Stencils
The stencil pair look like this. As with all DesignMagic™ stencils, the shapes are cut out on one stencil and the background is cut out on the other.
Here is the image painted on a piece of graduated fabric. I love the way the Design Magic images look when the background changes color. It’s a little extra bang for the buck.
Fizzy Fun at Houston Quilt Festival
Here’s a piece of fabric I stenciled while I was doing demos at Houston. I ran around the merchant mall before the show started because I needed a piece of fabric to paint on. I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to find this wonderful print from Robert Kaufman. (It’s from the Gallery Basics collection.) I mean really – could I ever expect to find fizz for my bubbles? And what are the odds that I would actually find this in all the bazillion yards of fabric at Festival???
Bubbles to Go
Here’s one of my Anything Goes Totes made with the Bubbles stencils. This tote is made of hand-dyed fabric from two of my fabric friends.
The bubbles on this muted stripe look more like a planets in the night sky. It’s a totally different look than the lighter pieces, but I like them both.
The Bubbles stencils were definitely our most popular new product at Fall Market. I hope you enjoy them!
