Painted Desert with Fabric Frame

Project Description

What was your inspiration? I wasn't sure how to finish the Painted Desert project (Painted Pictorial Quilt class) -- there is also a photo of the Painted Desert without the frame. Decided to mount it on a fabric background embellished with some techniques from the Stupendous Stitching class.

What you will need

  • Chenille yarn
  • variegated thread
  • wire
  • decorative cording

Q&A with Linnae

Quiltinjeni asked:
I am taking this class too! Fun! Your project is very pretty!
Linnae answered:
Thank you -- enjoy the class!
Carol Ann Waugh asked:
Your piece is just beautiful. The shading you did really draws me into the scene and I love how you are using Stupendous Stitching in the border!
Linnae answered:
Thanks, Carol. I used a twisted 3 cord for the border because I couldn't find rat tail in a good color -- it worked out pretty well and I thought it added to the western feel. Thanks for the great class -- I am now starting to automatically think about adding decorative stitches to my pieces.
