A little while back The Quilt Show had several video lessons by Nancy Prince on thread painting. The first project was called Solitary Tree and I decided to follow along. There was a downloadable file of a tree that could be printed, but I wanted to use my own drawing for this.
I started with a very cool piece of fabric for the background and hand appliqued this circle to represent the moon.Next, the tree was drawn using a Sharpie marker onto some water soluble film
It was backed with stabilizer, then put into a hoop
and following the directions.........the free motion stitching has begun.
More to come
