This started as a photograph of a man with the road to Jericho in the background. It was then sketched out before the fusible applique work was done. It came to Ideal Stitches only fused. I was challenged to secure all the fabrics as well as thread paint. I used black thread to stitch in the sand dunes, and invisible thread to appli-quilt. Notice all the line work and directionality in the denim jacket. Finally, I finished with a silvery gray embroidery thread to paint in his facial hair. I am so proud of the work here.
