Embroidery With a Longarm Machine: “Thread Play” Technique

Quilt It | Sue Patten-Week 1 | Episode 203

Sue Patten has taken the longarm machine in a totally new direction. She uses her longarm as an embroidery machine in a technique which she calls “thread play.” Her work is free motion using variegated thread. Using her simple thread counting technique the she anticipates and paints with the thread as it changes color. This produces subtle shading as if you were water color painting. Gorgeous!

Then watch part 2 which talks about making a non-traditional whole cloth quilt.
