I posted last week about the start of my Tetrad project. I pulled out my nicely quilted piece this morning and started using inks to color it in. I wasn’t getting the effect I was visualizing so I switched to paint. In my opinion, I completely ruined it with the paint. It was putrid! I won’t even show you how it looked. I was back to square one. I was thinking about colored pencils at this point. I traced the same picture onto fabric again. I have customer quilts on both longarms so decided to do the quilting free motion on one of my domestic machines. I still had embroidery thread sitting out from one of my last projects so decided to use that instead of the fine white thread. I started putting details in with the embroidery thread and it just went from there. I ended up with a thread painted project instead of using any type of pigment. I held it up for my oldest son when he came home and he thought it was painted, so I guess I can call that a success.
Here is the final product — the colors in my tetrad are red, green, blue violet and yellow orange. Click on the picture to enlarge it.
