Thread Painted Pear

I found this pic on the internet......
....so I blew it up to 8 by 10 and printed it out on white cotton fabric. I then matched the threads and thread painted it.

Here's the back....I thought that turned out kinda cool too.


I really like how it turned out. I'm going to do an eggplant next. Stay tuned ;)

I admire your desire to learn. Just like mine. You look at something and say, "what do I have to lose?"

I think so many quilters fall short of their talents because they feel they can't do something.

Well... ya never know until you try.

Keep it going!
