Instructor, Virginia Gregory's Class Sample: Stenciled Leaf Quilt

Tsukineko Fabric Inks

Shaving cream sprayed into a plastic cup....then Tsukineko fabric inks were dropped onto the shaving cream........looks good enough to eat!

Gorgeous stenciled leaves.......notice the 3D quality........the darker leaf looks under the lighter leaf.
Virginia cut the leaf stencils out of freezer paper

Class Sample: Circles Overlapping

This process leaves the fabric very soft.....if you close your eyes and rub your hands across the stenciled surface, you would not know there was any ink on the surface of the cloth.

Circles on Squares
The circles were stenciled first.....then squares of freezer paper were ironed over the top of the circles.......then the blue shaving cream was applied over the top to create the blue sashing strips.........then the freezer paper squares were removed to reveal the pattern.

After stenciling.....Rylee removed the freezer paper........brought the fabric over to the ironing board........pressed it to heat set the inks.......they are now permanent and washable with no fading.
