Q&A with Thread Head

Cindy Needham asked:
Holy smokes...this is beautiful!!! I love the contrasting thread you used...it makes it almost glow. You used all four elements of design...very well done. Congratulations! :)
Thread Head answered:
Thanks! I can't thank-you enough for the wonderful class - so inspiring!
Sonja Penny asked:
The project is gorgeous! I'm gleaning from the pros. What method did you use to apply the design on the fabric, e.g. pounce, paper, sulvy stabilizer, paper (tissue).
Thread Head answered:
I had drawn the design on paper and used a light table and an iron-off Clover pen to mark the design. More information for this piece can be found on my blog - http://joanne-threadhead.blogspot.com/2012/10/orange-whole-cloth-quilt.html
