Zen Doodle Fish
All of the long outline lines are quilted. I stitched very slowly so I could stay right on the lines. For the seaweed I used a rayon thread that is one strand each of black and white twisted together and I like the effect very much. I left the Timtex out of this one and I fused the fabric to the batting with Wonder Under. I think next time with will just use fusible batting or get some basting spray. I was not enchanted with fusing to the batting with Wonder Under. The whole thing kind of rippled in one area, I think I pressed it too much. It did quilt out however. * big sigh of relief* I am learning a few things as I go along. I wonder what tomorrow will bring. I hope it brings my Derwent Inktense pencils that I ordered. Then I can play with them and learn something else.
