A piece that was last shown here will be my focus for the next days. The quilting on the back piece is completed. The backing for this part is a pretty blue/white pastel calico (stash) fabric. The bottom edge was finished the same as the previous hanger/tutorial here………. Now…..on to the front piece……..first step is to outline stitch the motif… and some definition. First, without my fave micro-stippling….
The photo fails to show the “poof” adequately. Then, a little added background The “pop”/dimension is starting. Now, to ‘frame’ this area and move on to the rest of the background ‘fill’……..Additional note: I am using Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly, 70 wt, as the top thread and on the bobbin. It’s great for this fine stippling and I’m able to load “tons” on the bobbin (so less time spent running out/changing them!). I am, also, using a Schmetz quilting needle size 75/11.
