This is a project started last winter in a workshop from Heather Thomas on Thread Painting given by our Guild.
The Butterfly is made completely with thread and stitched directly on the fabric. Three of the leaves are needle lace which were stitched on netting and and stabilizer, rinsed and then tacked down. The 4th leaf is thread sketched onto the fabric. I quilted it and added a crocheted flower
I used a facing instead of binding to finish the edges. I left the top facing open to use it as a hanging sleeve.
Another finish for The Littlest Thistle.
I'm not done yet!! More to come!!
