I wanted to try my hand at thread painting and finally took the time to do it.  I chose a challenging subject of a face and am thrilled with my results.  I then put the face onto a collaged quilt.  The leaves are Lutradur.

Wonderful, I wish i could see a close up of the face.  How big is the quilt?  Did you use paint or ink too?

So many questions but it is wonderful

Thank you Whidbey and butterfly!  You can see a closer view of the face on my blog here:

The face is completely done in thread except for the lines I traced in Sharpie to start.  The quilt is small, around 8.5 x 11, but I haven't measured it, so that's a guess.

I went to your blog and I was impressed your thread work face is even more amazing up close..  Thank you for sending me there.  I have to smile you talked about  Lutradur.  I have never heard of it before so I figured you were from somewhere over seas.  Imagine my surprise when I read you are from North Dakota.  Uff Da!   I graduated from Minot state.    Soo what is Lutradur?

Whidbey, I found this information that probably explains Lutradur better than I can off the top of my head.  The information comes from C&T Publishing:

• Fabulous new non-woven fabric adds interest to art quilts, scrapbooks, ATCs, bookmaking, altered arts
• Ultra-strong sheets are easy to fold, cut, stitch, distress, and embellish
• Create delicate translucent effects with paints, inks, dyes, and stamps
• The perfect size for ink-jet printers or all-in-ones
• Learn all about how to use Lutradur in Fabulous Fabric Art with Lutradur by Lesley Riley

Lesley Riley's book is a great resource for learning great ways to work/play with it.
