Thread Painted Quilt Panels

What are you most proud of? The level of detail in the embellishment What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience and Practice! Work on several practice pieces to get the smooth motion. I took a class on this several years ago and it was a disaster--but I kept practicing and now I just love it! Keep the motion of the fabric as smooth as you can and I've found it works best to keep the machine moving at a constant medium-high speed. I've also found I need to loosen my machine's top tension.

Thank you! Each panel is different, and I really need to post a picture of each one. This posting was really a test.
