Thread Painting with Aurifil and Island Batik featuring Front Porch Sittin'

This is my finished project for the Island Batik Ambassadors October challenge, Front Porch Sittin'.

The theme of this month's challenge is Thread Painting with Aurifil threads.

These are the Aurifil threads I used for my project.  Most of these were sent in the Island Batik Ambassador box #2.  The thread colors are (from left to right) 2600, 2134, 2725, 2730, 4225, and 4030.
To make my Front Porch Sittin' quilt, I sewed strips of the Urbanization fabric cut with my Accuquilt Go strip dies together into the background, arranging the pieces to suggest areas of light and darkness.  Then I used coordinating Aurifil threads to "paint" skinny lines of thread over each strip.

The flowers were fused in place and accented with some echo quilting.

This is the back of the quilt.

I bound the quilt with a purple fabric.

I used Hobbs fusible batting for the inside of my quilt and Schmetz needles for all of the piecing and painting.

Here's a few more photos of my quilt.  This one is on my front porch.

Hanging on the garden fence.

Pretty folds.
