Whales tails quilted

I quilted my whales tails yesterday.

The lighting for this photo isn't the greatest but you can get the idea. I think the sky thread color is a bit to dark but I can live with it.

Now to add some embellishments (wide grin).

The only thing I can't decide - the shading on the tails, I did with fabric pastel crayons and it was light, so last night I watered down some fabric paint and added it but it was to watered cause it just blended in. I'm afraid to try thread because if I hate it, I can't take it out. Should I just leave it or try the paint again, just not as watered down. Is there enough shading?


If you are on twitter there is a Labor Day week end sew in going on all week end. - hash tag

#LDSI - just a bunch of quilters on twitter (twilters) posting pics on what they are working on, progress reports, questions posed, questions answered, cheered and laughs. If you are sewing this week end and are a tweeter - join us - if not, well you should!

I am @quiltscapes - see ya there!



  1. Looks good. I would live with it for awhile before I would add any new shading.

  2. Very nice. I really like those tails! But the thing that really makes it, is that silly cat!!!
