Stencil Hop: Flower Piecing
June 07, 2012
Today's stencil hop features two very talented ladies who are experienced stencil hoppers, back for more stencil action:
- Leslie Tucker Jenison: Leslie is a prolific quilter based in San Antonio, TX. She has appeared numerous times on Quilting Arts TV and has an hour-long instructional DVD called DIY Surface Design. She has been published in myriad books and magazines, including Quilting Arts Magazine.
- Tammy Tutterow: Tammy teaches a ton of online classes, both on her blog and at Big Picture Classes. She also has a roster of upcoming in-person classes, including several in Italy! Be sure to check out her etsy shop for project kits, jewelry, and lots of ribbon.
