Christmas Challenge Progress

I put my Christmas challenge blocks together and added a 2 1/2" border of the white tone-on-tone.  I had almost forgotten an idea I'd had earlier ... adding a little stenciling.
I marked guide lines on freezer paper, then drew simple block letters.  I cut the letters out VERY CAREFULLY with a single edge razor blade.  One side at a time I ironed the stencil on and applied the paint with a regular stencil brush.  The red acrylic paint was mixed 50-50 with fabric medium.
Next, the quilting!  I've chosen a dull medium green.  That's what I'll work on tonight.
