Exactly what it implies…coloring in an image with threads. The person uses a long and short stitch and blends colors together. ….
To get this project completed in time for the deadline set, I have to work on it a couple of hours a day.
Then again, I have no idea how long it will take. !!!!!! I've not done a project like this before.
I might get frustrated and throw it in the "Too hard" bin, but determination will probably prevent me from doing that.
As mentioned in previous posts I printed the picture on fabric in panels to create a largish quilt….
Its given me problems. However, I'm plodding away at it.
I realize now that I need to redraw almost all of the details. I began with lead pencil and this morning I changed to a Derwent Inktense pencil.
"Derwent Inktense Pencils are as versatile as watercolor pencils, but with a firmer texture that allows them to perform with the brilliant intensity of traditional pen-and-ink. These pencils are available in strong, vibrant colors which work beautifully on their own or can be mixed together to create rich, subtle tones."
The reason? – The pencils are harder and have an ink component in the lead. I can actually re-create the image which is a little blurred despite quite detailed printing on fabric.
In this image, you can see a strip of printed fabric that doesn't match.
Its better than having the brown background showing through.
The reason? – I had about a 1/4" gap due to inconsistent printing so I filled it in with a similar print, but that means that I have to draw on it to give me the final detail before quilting.
Right now I'm using Superior silk thread and 50 weight cotton thread in combination.
