Create unique fabric for an art quilt with Pine Cone stencils

For this project I used all 5 stencils in my new Pine Cone Stencil series for StencilGirl Products.

 >>>>>>>>>>> Jane LaFazio Stencils  <<<<<<<<<
First, stencil the images onto a piece of cloth. I used 200 thread count cotton, that had been coffee dyed. 
I added batting to the back of the cloth, then, on the back, used a stenciled tracing paper to machine stitch the outline of the pine cone.
Free motion stitching, semi-carefully following the stencil lines.

Here's the back of the quilt, with the paper still on it.
Turn the quilt over and see your outline of the pine cone.

I cut up the stenciled and quilted fabric to reassemble it.

It needed a focal point, so I enlarged the stencil image, added a piece of tulle to the FRONT and stitched the outline on the back of the quilt.

Then, I cut away the tulle, around the pine cone image, to create a lavender pine cone as a focal point on the quilt.

I designed these stencils for StencilGirl Products. This quilt uses all the stencils in my Pine Cone Stencil series.  You can find all my stencils here.
