A while back, I decided to participate in a quilted self portrait challenge. There are a lot of really talented ladies doing it and I have enjoyed seeing what everyone comes up with. Because of the trailer and all the work, I havent taken the time to put something together...Tonight I finally decided to play and have a go at it. Here is the picture I used....
Don took this of me in Hawaii...I was mid sip of some intoxicating drink when he asked me if it was good...I looked up and snap......I didnt want the straw in the portrait so I just used from the bottom of my nose up.....Here is the quilted version:
I put words to describe myself all around the edges. I laid pieces of fabric down and free motioned the details...I havent done a lot of people portraits. This was a fun challenge and I hope to do more...You can see a lot of the other portraits at
