Stencils are back - bigger, bolder, and more fun than ever. Blend images, colors, and materials to create lovely, lavish quilts. Master stencil designer, quilt artist, and teacher Marie Sturmer shares her beautiful stencil design patterns with quilters, crafters, and hobbyists. Learn the Trace & Transfer technique. Detailed instructions are given for coloring in the shapes by dry-brushing, pouncing, streaking, and circular motions, all done with acrylic paints. The author also describes a fun way to add texture from found objects, such as hardware cloth, plastic onion bags, and even chicken wire! These charming patterns can be used for appliqué, embroidery, and scrapbooking, and they are also useful for stenciling on walls, wood, and craft projects - any place a colored medium can be applied.

Marie Monteith Sturmer's PAINT A QUILT PATTERNS focuses on stencils and how they can be adapted for applique, embroidery, scrapbooking and other projects. Over sixty stencil patterns are shown in nearly thirty quilt and home decoration projects, can be scaled up or down as needed for size, and are accompanied by full-page color photos of application results. The result will delight any who have wanted to incorporate stencils into a quilting project. -Midwest Book Review A former art teacher, Marie Sturmer began her art training at Cranbrook Art Academy in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan., She received a bachelor of arts degree with a secondary teaching certificate from Alma College in Michigan and a master of fine arts from Wayne State University in Detroit.
