My Quilting Stencils in Love Patchwork and Quilting

Today I have fun news to share! I worked with the lovely folks oversees to include a fun freebie in the latest issue (#44) of Love Patchwork and Quilting!

Love Patchwork and Quilting Cover Issue 44

Love Patchwork and Quilting likes to include a special gift to go along with each issue. They contacted me about 6 months ago, asking if we could collaborate to create some quilting stencils based on quilting motifs from my books, Machine Quilting with Style and The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting.

I’ve never had my own stencils before, so this was a fun opportunity!

That was an easy “yes” for me to say! I chose 5 of the most versatile designs from both books: Swirls and Pearls (shown below), Boxes, Double Loops, Continuous Spiral and Square Spiral.

Although you don’t need stencils to quilt the designs in my books, they are a fun way to see if you like quilting on marked lines. The issue also includes a short profile of me and my books along with some bonus quilting tips.

Love Patchwork and Quilting is produced overseas, but is available locally at Joann, Barnes & Noble, or your local quilt shop. It’s also available by subscription. Click here for more information on where to buy.

    Hi Christa! I’m a fan and blog follower and was delighted to see your name and stencils in a U.K. Magazine (I’m in the U.K.) so bought it straight away. I can’t wait to try them out! I hope to see a lot more of your articles over here! Thanks!

    will pop into the stationers tomorrow and pick up a copy, if they are as good as your books they will be excellent. Have not worked with stencils before so it will be fun to have a go

    These stencils look great. I purchase the magazine in New Zealand and love it. The beautiful modern quilts are so exciting and now a stencil to try out for the quilting, that’s a bonus. I love your blog Christa and have been a viewer for quite a long time.

    This is great. Congratulations. I purchase this magazine. I find it a fun read and soooo many modern quilts that I would like to make. To get stencils made by you will be a super bonus. I have your book and now I will have something new to follow while using your book. Have a good day.
