Thread Painted Kingfisher - I took a thread painting class early 2020 and this kingfisher bird was my first attempt at thread painting. This bird was just sitting around for a year so I decided to finish it for this challenge. The thread painting just called out for a 3-D technique so I found some colorful tulle from my stash and other embellishments for feathers. I used colors that I prefer rather than the typical blue and orange of a real kingfisher bird. I found a coordinating floral print for a border and backing, and took pics of the thread painting before sandwiching and quilting it.
