This idea popped into my wee little head and before I had time to really think about it, I started sewing, fallowing it's lead. There were days when it would progress very nicely and then all of a sudden my inspiration was gone. A week or so later, it'd "talk" to me again and I'd go back to stitching, never really knowing where the project was going. The fan coral presented the biggest challenge. It is 3 layers of net (Green, purple and red) layered with angelina fibers and fused. I put blue 'fingers' of tulle behind it, but the effect is so subtle you can hardly see them. *Shug* Live and learn...

This is great!  May I ask... what did you use in your bobbin with the shiny threads?

No Debbie, all of the fabric is comercial - mostly batiks.

Debbie-do, I honestly don't recall what was in the bobbin when I did the thread painting. Just good quality all-purpose thread. Probably Mettler or Guterman. I have the best luck when I loosen the tension a little on the top thread when I use that holographic ribbon thread. If that doesn't do the trick, I wind it on the bobbin and stitch it with the top up-side-down (altho that can create issues withplacement!).

Yes sometimes the fabric has to tell you what it wants, doesn't it?  It wanted to be beautiful. I'm so happy that you listened!

CC, I absolutely love your wall hanging.  More so because I am always impressed by how you 'listened' to what the fabric wanted and came up with that beautiful creation!  I always admire how people can 'paint' with fabric.  I guess I am more of a traditionalist in my way of quilting, because I am not so sure my wee head would come up with something this grand.

Great job.  You deserve many pats on the back.
