Back some time ago I started my Bending Tree wall hanging (see my featured post). I finally picked it up last week and finished it.
I purchased a large stash of rayon thread a month or two ago. They were on sale for buy 3 and get 3 free. I like it for machine appliqué, the shine is really nice. However, I have learned not to use it in the bobbin. I stick to a 50wt cotton thread in a close shade. I found that the tension and stitches were much better.
Lots of machine appliqué of the leaves. Not sure if I prefer the variegated or solid thread colors.
Now down to the quilting. Just a simple outlining around the stems.
I decided on the background quilting to use a modified fan quilting that matches the print on the background fabric.
And I have a finish this week at last.
This is a lovely piece--your applique is gorgeous nice work hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
Your tree looks so much better than the one I just finished. I've never been good at drawing trees but where I placed it kinda fits with the funky finish. Love your tree.ReplyDelete
I really like your bendy tree!ReplyDelete
The variegated thread adds so much interest. I like that you used lots of different shades. This piece turned out really nice.ReplyDelete
wow, wow, wow!!ReplyDelete
love it so much!!
ohh ahh! I like the variegated threads! Nice appliqué!ReplyDelete
That is wonderful! I love the curves of the tree branches and leaves. Congratulations on your finish!ReplyDelete

What a fun piece, I love seeing a little shine on the applique thread.ReplyDelete
Your Tree Quilt turned out beautifully. I love the free-form of it and your quilting was perfect.ReplyDelete
Love the flowing curves of this tree. A fine finish!ReplyDelete
It is a tough choice of solid thread color or variegated. The quilt stitches compliment the design nicely.ReplyDelete
I like the mixture of both threads. I am not often pro varigated thread but it fits well with your batic fabrics. And the precision in the applique... Enjoy your finish! xo MelanieReplyDelete
