True to Melly fashion I am working on something that has bird feathers in it. I can't really say what I am making but figure I can show a small detail shot. It won't give away the house, so to speak. The interesting thing with this piece is the use of COTTON thread. I usually use rayon exclusively, But was given some cotton thread and began to wonder.
Texture and differences in texture are a basic artistic concept. The layering technique that I use merges beautifully when quilted with rayon thread, but when I opened a recent shipment of Sulky threads I began to think. Cotton has a low luster compared to rayon. It is also appears heavier in terms of weight. Doesn't the idea of mixing the two threads in a single piece count a difference in texture?
And, um. I do believe. I yike it.
So, who amongst you plans to participate in the Inspired to Quilt Video Prompt Challenges? In an effort to gear up for that I would like to link our blogs in a "Blog Roll" so that we can each visit one an others sites. If you plan on it, please leave a comment on this post, I will take your blog link and create a list of bloggers who wish to play. If you don't have a blog no worries, you can still play.
