"Thread Painting & Angelina"

 

Thread Painting has been around for a while, so maybe it’s time to try it out for yourself to see if it is a good fit for your quilting designs.  The Flower Bowl is a great start to learn this, new to you, technique.  Once you have experienced the procedure for Thread Painting you will be able to take it to other projects.  Learning how to add Angelina fibers to your project will give you confidence to continue to use Angelina fibers in other projects too. It’s like putting the icing on the cake… I love to learn new things in the Quilting world!!!!!
