Make Fabric Postcards on “Quilty”!
This is a funny week. It’s reminds me of the filling of a holiday sandwich. Between Christmas and New Year’s we don’t expect people to be around, to be productive. So to me it’s a great time to get things done and try things I’ve been itching to experience.
In preparation for shooting Quilt Out Loud! which we taped earlier this month I dove into thread painting, something I’d been wanting to play with. Boy, is it fun! And so, so forgiving! During this limbo week I’ve been doing more and am quickly gaining skills.
Want to try it? You need go no further than QNNtv.com. I typed in “thread painting” in the search box on the site and came up with a long list of videos to watch.
The first person I saw do this technique is Terry White. This video is a great introduction to thread painting:
Marlis Bennett from Bernina shows how to thread painting on printed fabric.
Once you’ve got the basics down, go ahead and be wowed at the possibilities these two artists on Quilt It! The Longarm Quilting Show present:
