    Loved your video on painting with Shiva Paintstiks. Your quilts are beautiful. I would like to know if the paintstiks are safe to use on a baby quilt? I was thinking of stenciling a design in the center and on a few squares to be used in the quilt for my new grandbaby. The last time I painted with stencils was on a wall many years ago. Thank you!

    I think it looks like fun. I didn't think the stiks were all that expensive.

    Those things cost a fortune. How about teaching us something we don't have to empty our wallets to do.
