In my last post I descirbed how I painted and prepapred the background for my latest wall hanging. The picture below shows the next step with the palm fronds pinned in place ready to be fused, then stitched.
I then added the detail on the far river bank using thread painting. I first used a dark green along the lower and top edges, a lighter green to highlight the tree tops and then a thicker variegated thread for the palms alng the water’s edge.
The palm fronds were stitched in place using raw edge applique. Then the final step was to layer and quilt the whole piece.
The edges were finished with a narrow black binding.
The completed wall hanging.
