Hi Everyone! Maria here...
Here are what the stencils look like:
Let me give you a little peek into my process with them:
I started on a piece of 100% wool felt and used a kitchen cereal bowl to draw circles with a Stabilio white pencil.
Then came the stenciling part. I used gesso and a cosmetic sponge to put each of the images within the circles. Not much gesso is needed--just a little dab.
Then I began my needle felting. It is almost a little weird how much I enjoy needle felting. It is VERY relaxing to me. It is a very inexpensive way to make me smile!
Here is a video (that I have posted here before) on needle felting basics.
If you can't see the video click HERE.
So...that is where it all began. Needle felting....stitching....more stitching = Art Quilt. I have a feeling this will turn into something else at some point, but for now it makes me HAPPY!
Here are some close-up shots for you.

One of my favorite parts of the club is our Secret Facebook Group that is a benefit of the club. So many people sharing, inspiring and encouraging each other. Just to see how each person interprets the stencils so differently each month is so exciting to me.
