I finished the machine embroidery/thread play on the (once was) all white fabric landscape and I’m pretty happy with the results. You will, I’m sure, notice I have take artistic liberties; Don’t try to figure out what kind of trees, leaves or flowers those are!
Here are side by side pics of the piece; On left the before fusing/embroidery/thread play. The pieces were just placed on my design table so the arrangement may be slightly different. I also dusted some of the pieces with a bit more wax pastel before stitching.
I have always found it a challenge to stitch on my hand painted skies because I think they look better before, but it’s an art quilt so I stitch! Now I’ll have to decide if I want to satin stitch the raw edge and add batting, another layer of felt or cotton and quilt it, which would add more depth to the tree trunks and rocks, OR if I will move on to making another one which I will video as I “paint” each element for my series of lessons. Either way I’ll share it here. Thanks for stopping by!
