Machine Quilting Day 35
Another Wednesday of quilting, 36 weeks in a row in fact. My photo this week is sea foam. This photo was taken while traveling on the interislander between the North and South Islands of New Zealand.
I have stitched sea foam before using different threads to create texture as you can see in this small art quilt called Rugged West Coast.
But today I am using regular quilting thread.
I started out by making a curved outline simulating the shape of the foam in the photo.
Then I added an outline shape through from one side to the other to divide the area up.
I added a few more of these outline shapes.
Then, using a tiny stipple, I began to fill in the areas outside the outlined shapes.
Usually I would use a silky or fine thread when stitching so small but this time I wanted a heavier look so used an embroidery thread.
To finish off I echoed a double white line within the shapes.
This is a little hard to see so here is a closeup.
I really like doing small stipple as I have here, the only problem is, it takes a long time to cover a small area.
