OUT OF THE ASHES

…well actually out of my machine – this one…

How I made the Phoenix Postcard.

It is Thread-painted which is totally different to Quilting although this was quilted, you would never think by the time it was finished though due to all the thread-work on it. I love thread-painting, I hope I am improving as I do more of it.

Hmm what do you say about yourself? I am a Quilter. I just love to Quilt for myself and others. I love fabrics and threads, simple things, but they make me very happy.
