Last night, I put the binding on the View From Clingman's Dome! No longer a WIP!! Yay! On the whole, I am pleased with it although the fabrics I had to work with did not give me the luminosity I was wanting. The limitations of commercial fabrics kind of held me down , however, if I had more time , I could likely have found better ones.
And now, for the people who like to see the stitches.....
|Invisible thread used here to quilt the sky.|
|The quilting on the mid ground trees is very random and I only stitched near the tops of the trees. All I wanted was a bit of relief and interest and texture, not detail.|
|Doing the grasses in the foreground is really fun! I love machine quilting and thread painting.|
I am posting the finished product on WIP Wednesday on The Needle and Thread Network. A new WIP is in progress but it is VERY WIP just now so not much to show.
Look a needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.ca Lots of interesting things to see and to read about there. Come and join us!
