I've had lots of visitors today, so the work has been spasmodic.  I finished the thread illustration on the flower and you will note that I've taken it out of the background…(the top petal and the stem) it gives a 3 dimensional effect.

Now I'm quilting the background following my computer manipulation guides. The watermarks will be left with no quilting in them       (I think)

I will cut some of the leaves from the final background fabric and soften the edges of the piece by appliqueing them over the picture.

I think I will make 2 free standing aggy leaves which will cross on the right hand side of the quilt. Its a bit hard to explain… but just keep watching.

    I’m practicing on a preprinted Santa….I’m finding that thread painting/quilting is a wonderful technique to do this way. I’m looking forward to doing one of my own photographs and bringing it through the stages of development. I love the texture you are giving the piece. I will stay tuned.

  2. Thanks Lynn, try something small to start with… you don’t have to cover the entire thing with thread like I have… but it’s good practice.
