This item was created during a class with Sue Benner. The project began with a fused grouping of multi-colored fabrics. The raw edged fabric shapes were overlapped by at least 1/4” to avoid gaps. The combined composition was stamped using a stencil and copper colored metallic fabric paint.
The manipulated quilt top was then fused to a layer of cotton batting. A fabric backing completes the sandwich. Straight lines of machine stitched quilting were added using a variegated thread. The fiber art piece was finished with a binding, label and hanging sleeve. In its finished form the small fabric art piece measures 12” x 12 1/4”.
The inspiration for naming my project came from the stenciled copper image.
Before closing let me thank you for showing an interest in my activities. I am grateful for your participation and look forward to your comments.
Best wishes for a wonderful day!

I 100% prefer copper to gold…it makes everything twizzle and yet it also integrates a wider palette of fabrics IMHO. I like this piece!
Your description makes me giddy! It is so exciting to view my piece through your eyes. Thank you for sharing your perspective. 🙌
That’s gorgeous! I could see a larger piece like that hanging over a fireplace mantle and being the focus of a room.
Oh good idea!
The copper paint has worked beautifully
Awe thank you! 🙂
Beautiful work, Cindy! 😍
Hi Cindy! I love the piece in your header on your website. I’ve never seen the technique using a stencil and copper but it sure turned out nice. ~smile~ Roseanne
Thank you! The banner is a segment of one of my 8×10’s yet to be featured.
Wow I heard Sue B speak many years ago and do sort of a trunk show and she is absolutely amazing! You are so lucky to have taken a class with her and oh my goodness that piece is so gorgeous! I love the fabrics, the palette, and the design!
Thank you! I do feel very lucky. The place that I enjoy visiting has had so many wonderful teachers. Sue is by far a favorite!
