I've not added any thread painting bird of paradise. I did have enough time to work out the kinks on that yet. The one that I showed when I removed it and got rid of the dissolvable stabilizer it turned very stiff. So I need to play around some more as to how I make them before I'm ready to use them in a quilt.
I'm going to be doing some quilting while on vacation but I'm not sure what just yet. I'm taking my camera with me and will be taking pictures. I will have limited access to the Internet but I'm not sure if I will get a chance to post while I'm on the island of Kauai. In the mean time I hope everyone has a great time quilting and I will be back in touch mid June.
