This is the other thread painted gift I worked on in December.  The background is made of confetti pieces captured in tulle and free motion quilted  Bird and thistle are freehand cut from fabric and then covered with thread thread-painting.

December Project – Love Birds

lovebirdsdf2016
One of my newest thread paintings was a pair of love birds. The background is constructed of confetti pieces captured in tulle. After quilting I couched some of Ricky Tim’s Razzle Dazzle thread over it. Next I added the branch and birds freehand cut from fabric. The next step is the thread painting which is the bulk of the work. My final step is to crop and finish the edges with a satin stitch. This piece was matted and put in an 11 by 13 inch frame.

WIP – one down

Had a delay on the angel quilts, ran out of thread and need pink flannel to bind one of the quilts.  Yesterday finished quilting one quilt and squared it up.  The second quilt is about two thirds quilted but will have to wait until Friday to be finished.  I have all the binding cut and ready to go.  Here are some pictures of the quilting.
