    Question I need some ideas on finishing this panel?????

    I found this stashed away from many years ago & would like to finish it. I was thinking of outline quilting this. What do you think & to what detail, and what about thread color or colors?? Thanks, as I know you guys are great quilters & have some great ideas.

    Do you have the skill level to do some thread painting type work in the wings and some leaves? I don't, but I think it would be beautiful if you could do it.

    Yes, I totally agree that some thread painting work on the wings and leaves would be stellar. If you do thread painting on the wings, I'd try to use a thread that is sparkly. Outline quilting for the rest, a small stipple in the white area and maybe a vine and leaf design in the border would be lovely. I'd outline the borders. It would be gorgeous done that way.

    Outline stitching around everything would work. Thread painting some of the panel features would be pretty also.

    If you are comfortable using metallic thread I would use an opalescent one.

    I think silver thread painting would be great for the wings

    My first thought was thread painting. It will be beautiful.

    I agree with DebbE. Sounds like it will be beautiful. And maybe add some crystals to the centers of the flowers.

    Yes, I agree with everyone! Outlining and thread painting would look lovely. Please post the finished piece.

    Thanks everyone. I agree thread painting would look great, if I can pull it off. I need to watch some tutorials & give it a good try. Now, just need to find the thread & I will post a picture when I get it finished. (Just don't hold your breath) I live a ways from a small town, so will have to wait for my big shopping day in a larger town.

    I just finished on like this! I'm not very good and not able to figure out how to picture, but it is beautiful and a plain fabric on the back is gorgeous! Because you can see it on the back too!

    I just finished mine similar to this, I stitched around the borders, flowers and wings and added bling with swarkofski crystals, I looks really cute . I am giving it to my niece on Thursday.
