    Manly Man Tiger

    I have been working on this for awhile now. It has been so fun, just have binding left to do. I wish there were more of this kind of patterns. Wow did I use a lot of thread.

    Is this pieced, then quilted? Did you have a pattern to follow for the thread painting?

    This is raw edge applique. There is no pattern for thread painting, just take a deep breath and go.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
