Quilt is Coming Along
Day before yesterday I got allot stitching done one my quilt. After I glued my fussy cut pieces down .
I used machine embroidery and different colors of green and brown thread to stitch over the surface.
I am going to add mushrooms an maybe a few flowers to the quilt .
I am using solvy and bridal tulle to make my plants on the log to the left. I draw my plants on the solvy with a marking pin then layer the solvy and tulle and place them in an embrodiery hoop and stitch my plants.
I wash the solvy tulle sandwich , dry the threads, iron them and apply them to the quilt.
Yesterday I cut the fabric for the mushrooms and layered it with solvy and another fabric. I cut out the mushrooms and glued them in place. This technique gives them more dimension. After I applied them I painted each on and the mushrooms on the left were stitched in place.
I added a few young trees . I used machine stitching and I applied their leaves using a brush and Elmers glue.
Today I am going to see about adding flowers and do a little more thread painting with my machine.
Ran out of thread so I'm waiting for my friend to bring me some more from the shop.
