The World

In my quilt, The World, thread plays a crucial part in fine, tiny details like the spider, fly and web. They are inked with Pigma pen and quilted with black thread.

Choice of thread weight and color contribute to the giraffe's realism. Her eyelashes use heavy (30wt) dark thread and the chin hairs are a fine (60wt) pale thread. Neither would work in the opposite application.
