Thread painting over appliqué.
I’m afraid I’ve been slow to put my projects up, however, I have a few and I will add them next month.
In this project I used a variety of Aurifil threads.
I began with a drawing on my iPad. I used a photo of the crow who visits us each day.
Then worked through the process of preparing the appliqué.
Of course it’s the thread that makes the difference. I used 50 weight for most of the quilting and illustration.
Thread painting over appliqué is done with a free motion zig zag.
The Quilting over Quilting done by hand was using the 12 weight cotton. I really like the effect.
