Then work on the subject (the bee) separately, When satisfied with the subject. attach it to the background by free-motion quilting,

That's really amazing. I've tried using thread to paint a quilt and I always end up with the quilt being distorted. Any suggestions to keep that from happening? I really love this!!

Whenever I create a thread painted quilt, I try to keep a balance of quilting throughout the whole quilt. If I'm heavily thread painting major elements, I keep the surrounding areas much less heavily thread painted. For this particular piece, I thread painted the bee, cut it out, then appliqued it onto a fresh sandwiched background. Then quilted the background fabric after attaching the bee
