We were given the opportunity to watch a program from The Quilt Show featuring Libby Lehman and her amazing Threadplay and Sheer Ribbon Illusions. The technique is fun and amazing!!!! I wish I would have played with it sooner as it is really cool!!!
I first tried just putting a stablizer on the back and stitching without a hoop. WRONG!!! Lots of puckering of the fabric, so I took it all out. Even with the hoop I still have some puckering, but nothing like I had in the beginning!!!
It took me awhile to get the sequence down, but once I did, it was easy and fun!!
|In the hoop and once section done|
|First I used a peach 100wt YLI silk thread and filled in the space|
|Then I added the dark 50wt Mettler cotton|
|Then lastly, white 100wt YLI silk|
|Another section done|
|You can see that I drew out the design, then stitched the outlines|
