This was made from a picture taken by a friend and used with her permission. It is thread painted and then appliqued on to the background. It measures 9 3/4" wide by 12 1/2" long.
Absolutely Beautiful! Did you collage the kitty first and then thread paint over the fabric? or is it pure threadpainting?
Very beautiful !!!!! love the colours, have not done thread painting yet, but am hoping to do so soon. Great job !!
It's really natural! It seems almost if you can touch her....
So realistic, this has really inspired me...what a patience you have to do such a painting with thread...hours of work & not to mention all the thread....I am looking forward to your multiple printing.
This is beautiful, I love the red background, makes the cat look like 3D.
I'm sorry but I love cats, and this is beautiful. It captures the cats look of regalness. Well done.
Your quilt inspired me to give thread painting a try-and I amTHRILLED with my attempt. Thank you so much for sharing your work!
Absolutely beautiful !!!
What a beautiful work of art-and an outstanding background to feature the threadwork of kitty so nicely!
How did you do your threadwork on the kitty though? It looks so perfect! Did you use a foundation fabric and do the threadwork on top, or put some type of heavier foundation material over the fabric-or not, or perhaps use solvy? Or did you use other materials? My threadwork always puckers when I try to get this kind of density done on a piece...and this is after trying everything as a foundation, after several layers of foundations and/or interfacings, over the top and bottom of the fabric, and trying differing materials as well...and using a high end machine- which i thought could do anything!! (not when I am driving it, I guess!) But, yours looks so very smooth and even, bravo!!
Any hints as to how you accomplished this lovely piece, or what materials you might have used?
