As I mentioned yesterday I was inspired by another quilters thread painting on the Quilt With Us Site. I wanted to share a few samples of her work with you. This pretty much amazed me and got me to try it for myself. I'm not seeing these as possible accents blocks in my quilting and who knows what else. It was almost like therapy doing the one I've done too. Very relaxing. I love to quilt my quilts, it's my favorite part. The only bad thing is when it's larger than a wall hanging sometimes I get the old shoulder pain from moving the quilt around after about 30 min. With these small sections like the little dragon which is only 6" wide there was no discomfort due to it's small size. Another plus. Now about Barbara Blackwell's work.
Barbara is from Melbourn Australia and works from home sewing dog training harnesses & collars. This is quite the contrast to her beautiful thread painting.
From her site, "
Check out Barbara's site and if you haven't been over to Quilt With Us yet you should drop by. There are some wonderful groups there and I've learned so much.
