This quilt relies heavily on thread painting with some hand beading thrown in. It was completed in 2012.
I like your work. I do similar thread painting, along with art quilting. It's so much fun. I've found the secret is picking the right photo to work from, how about you?
Elaine - I agree. Becuase you spend so much time with the image it is really important to love what you are looking at. I found there was also a really big learning curve. There are not a lot of books dedicated to the subject.
