by Jacqueline Paton Delivers in September 2016. Artist Jackie Paton designed her charming new collection, Shine, to encourage us to always be eager to Explore and Learn so that we can Grow and Shine! Jackie tells us, "Don't waste the day - do something!" Using her signature stencilscapes technique, she painted a whimsical tree of knowledge for the main panel and added five companion vignettes to inspire us. Wise owls, inquisitive cats, industrious birds, and breezy butterflies play on the Shine panel scenes. Cathedral Window motifs and the words of advice, Be Honest, Be Kind, Be Wise, and Be Happy, add to the motivational theme. Coordinates include a Be Wise, Be Happy border and a toss of owls asking Who will Shine? A toss of butterflies, a Cathedral Window geometric, a toss of colorful leaves, tone-on-tone stars, and bubbles, all in muted reds, greens, blues, and soft golds, complete the collection. Frame the tree of knowledge panel with the border stripe for an easy-to-sew wall hanging that's ready to display in your home, a classroom, or a clubroom to encourage learning and creativity! The smaller panel motifs are nicely sized for little wall hangings, placemats, and tote bags to carry notebooks, sketchpads, and quilting and sewing projects. The Cathedral Windows geometric is perfectly sized for fussy cutting into squares for cornerstones and strips for sashings for pieced and appliqued quilt blocks. For more inspiration, patterns designed by Lucy Fazely and Nancy Walhout Recker for the Shine collection will be free to download when the collection ships.
