    Is when you cover the entire area on a design with thread. Is done almost the same way as free motion quilting, but I use fine threads and is very dense stitched.

    This is an example.

    Beautiful! Looks very hard to do. You must have a lot of patience.

    That is just beautiful. A work of art. Great job. It's something I want to try someday.

    Never done it. I don't think I could afford all the thread to do it.

    That is when you do small projects. The flamingo is no bigger than 14 x 14.

    Wow, the flamingo photo is cool!

    Is there any links for tutorials or videos on thread painting?
