I may be able to create art quilts, but I still haven't quite figured out how to use this computer ! LOL!
wow this is amazing :)
I'm really admiring your work on this cardinal. I hope to thread paint texture on an eagle I am appliqueing but I'm very nervous as I've never thread painted. Seeing your examples has been very helpful.
I'm so glad I was able to help you in some way. Just relax, don't over think it, and enjoy the process you really can't make a mistake. If you find that you're not pleased with, you can always stitch over it! My suggestion is to begin by just stitching in the direction that the feathers grow out from the Eagle's body and wings. Have fun with it, there are no mistakes!
