Thread Art

The custom quilting projects I worked on last weekend have been picked up, so I can now share some pictures with you.  This sunflower wall hanging gave me the opportunity to do a bit of thread painting for detail and some artistic variations in the stitching patterns to compliment the overall design.  I love the versatility of leaves and I enjoyed stitching them in various ways around the background of this scene.

The Canada themed quilt below has a simple edge to edge loop stitching pattern so the fabric gets to do all the fancy work here!  Both were pieced by Shelley Knott of Mayerthorpe, AB.  Isn’t that map in the centre cool?  I know from experience how much fun (cough) it is to deal with pre-printed panels that aren’t straight on grain so I’m sure getting all those provincial pieces to fall in line was a challenge fit for – as my readers can attest to – someone other than myself! Haha

I’m just finishing the binding on the appliquéd leaf quilt I posted the sneak peek of earlier this week, so I’ll be back tomorrow with pictures of the end result 🙂
