This is an Angel quilt, which was transfered using a Sulky transfer pen.  I then used a cross hatch design to outline the angel and dyed it brown using Dye na Flow and inktense pencils.  It was then free motion quilted and hot fixed crystals applied.  It hasn't been bound yet, but I'm working on it.

This is stunning. I zoomed in to where I could see your thread painting better and it's stupendous. Your color choices are so subtle and so perfect, they leave me in awe!

I'm curious; What do you do with your art quilts when you finish them? They need to be on public display somewhere!!

Thankyou everyone.

Chocake, I usually finish them and give them away!  I have a huge family and they end up being wedding gifts or thankyou gifts and simply "I love you" gifts!  The angel was made for a sister and brother-in-law who went "above and beyond" in a time of need!  I felt they were guardian angels sent from Heaven which was the inspiration for this piece!  I am working on other pieces which I hope to include in a local gallery!

This is gorgeous!  Your thread-painting is beautiful and as said before, the color blending is perfect. Are you using a domestic machine or a mid/long arm?

Thankyou!  Donna B... I'm using a Janome 6600 which I absolutely love!  I also quilt on a vintage Singer 15-91 which does a beautiful job as well!
