Kris won! She at Kris Loves Fabric Blog!
Kris chose Thread Painting for her quilting prize. She sent me a McKenna Ryan four block wall hanging.
I started to pick out thread colors.
Here are a couple photos before I started quilting.
It is a raw edge applique' using a lite heat and bond to adhere it to the fabric. Kris cut and pressed all the little pieces before she sent it to me.
I thread painted on each section of the petals of the flowers and the center of the flowers too.
Here's a really up close photo of the daisy. Remember the stitches are really tiny.
I quilted the background of each block with a pebble or rock quilting. Gives it a little dimension.
I used a green called trainer green. It is like an army green. It looks great on all 4 background fabrics. It's a color that kind of blends in.
I continued to change thread colors and stitch each section.
Here is a before and after on the leaves.
And then the other leaves...
Up close of the other flower. The light yellow gives it highlights.
The little yellow chick has tiny feathers.
I added a lite tan and a white thread to the eggs.
I quilted tiny circles to add texture to the rooster's face.
I flipped it over, so you can see the backside of the wall hanging. Kris chose a perfect color for the backing fabric.
I took a photo before I sent this off in the mail to Kris.
Kris sent me a surprise gift! Thanks Kris! I love bright fabrics!
