Overview

Thread painting adds dimension to quilting that cannot be achieved with fabric and appliqué alone. Thread painting is an exciting avenue for immortalizing these images in a lasting, tangible memory. Plus, it can add texture, character, and a bit of spark to your quilting. It is not necessary to be an accomplished artist or even an advanced embroiderer or quilter to be successful with this technique. Results are effective almost immediately at a beginner level. Through Nancy's tulle sandwich method, a minimal amount of effort and practice is all it takes to achieve lovely results. This technique allows the flexibility to design and create in any size and configuration desired. Not only can it be used in wallhangings, but also on vests and jackets, greeting cards, crazy quilt embellishment, pillows, memory books, and much more. Design elements taken from wallpaper can be transferred to pillowcases, dust ruffles, tablecloths, or napkins. The possibilities are endless.
