the ladies on the powch



so the quilting is almost done...now for the edge...its going to be pieced...well it is if it cooperates...so far it is NOT cooperating at all...

I uploaded both the original and how it looks now so you could see that the thread painting does change the color of the original picture...

Maggie, I love how you maintained the loose, free-flowing feel of your original painting, in your threadwork. Outstanding!

The thread painting really makes the colors pop. Can't wait to see it in person.

WOw, the colors become more rich. I thought the first one was grand, but this is really something to see.

Until I looked closely, I just thought it was a watercolor. Love it for sure as it captures so much of SC...the culture, the colors and the low country...
