I started with giblets of fabric on top of 70 wt pellon, then tulle on top to hold them in place. Finally, I thread painted the details. Hanging in the Copper Shade Tree gallery in Round Top, TX. 16"x20".
Oh, Deborah! I love this one...and the full size image shows the surpise of the shimmering thread. Magical!
This really is thread painting ! I like the subtility of it and of the sky ,especially.
Really spectacular , I thought from the moment I read "bluebonnets", this quilter has to be from Texas.. I love it.
Fantastic piece of art. You have so totally captured the feel of Texas and the bluebonnets!!!
Thanks for the compliments! I was notified last night that it SOLD. It now lives with a nice family in San Antonio.
Nice to see your work again, I love how you paint with fabric and thread!
