Sand, Sea, Sun & Stencil

May 30 – June 4, 2015


You won’t want to miss this fabulous opportunity to enjoy 5 nights at a beautiful resort in Grand Cayman.  J. Michelle Watts was our very first teacher on our very first quilting cruise and now she will be hosting our very first land retreat.  Come join us on J. Michelle’s favorite Caribbean island for a wonderful week of fun, sun and inspiration.


ABOUT THE PROJECT:  The beatiful Caribbean sand and sea will surely inspire you as you stencil the stunning Island del Sol medallion using laser cut stencils and Paintstiks.  Explore the endless design possibilities with the fifteen interchangeable design elements.  You will be creating a one of a kind circular medallion inspired by the sun.


Come discover the simple techniques and tricks to using Paintstiks.


we will explore bead, stitching, pen and quilting embellishment ideas that can enhance your medallion.  This project can be used as a tablecloth, the center of a larger medallion quilt or a wall hanging.  You could even cut it into sections and assemble with other fabrics for a contemporary art piece.


Kits will include everything you need for a 36″ x 42″ project.
