    This is for my daughter, she loves this clown because her nickname is noodle. The wallhanging is 24 by 36. In the pictures you will also see how we did the process from a snapshot. Then blew up the snapshot to an 8 by 10. Then outlined the shape and shading. Then went shopping. The fun part. It has been thread painted on a home machine. My first time doing this process. I'm amazed how it worked.

    Fabulous work! I am inspired by your process and creativity. I assume you used free motion quilting?

    Thread painting is enhancing a pic. with thread, like showing shadows or movement. Sometimes can be coloring with thread. It is done free motion. thank you for nice comments. I really had fun with this one.

    I hope I don't sound stupid, but is the thread painting like where the quilt lines are ? I love what you did and am just trying to understand it better, thanks for your patience

    There are no stupid questions. yes quilting with a twist, it helps to define, highlight, shade, and add details. It can also be called Thread Play. But all of this does quilt it at the same time. It also can be done with heavy thread like 30wt. but is hard to find in solid colors. On the board is the cone flower i did, this time i had used 2 strands of 40wt. through one needle to get a heavy thread painting effect. Hope i am explaining it good enough to understand.
