    I got this pre-printed whole cloth from The Stencil Company. They were at the Vermont Quilt Festival. I had never seen so many stencils together. I found this one in a discounted bin and got it for $2 or $3 because the color is discontinued. I first used two layers of fabric to do the embroidery details. I did that free hand. Then I added the batting with water soluble thread. I used wool batting, and this is the project that smelled like a wet animal. I cut the batting on the back and then placed over another layer of batting and backing fabric. I quilted around the embroidery designs and they really popped up. I soaked and it dried faster than I was expecting. I started this on Sunday night and binded it by machine tonight.

    This was done with the Madeira threads I got from another board member. Real beautiful threads.

    Wow, you do really nice work. I saw that vendor also. I didn't realize this vendor was selling kits and stencils or I might have gotten one myself. Yours is absolutely beautiful.

    Outside of the booth, on a table, they had many pre-printed cloth pieces like this one. The colors were odd, like lemon yellow, very dark green, etc. They also had some real big pieces that were rejected by their inspectors, but still good stuff. You had to look around with patience, because the first thing you saw was all those blue stencils and your eye didn't want to see anything else. I spent a long time at their booth.
