You know me.......the grass doesn't grow under my feet long until I'm engrossed in something new! Since I had such fun creating my swap partner in fabric for the "Love of Solids" swap (yet to be unveiled), I thought maybe a series of ladies faces might be interesting.
I got out my paper and pencils and went to town. Originally I thought I'd capture my friends in fabric (and that still might happen), but it was just so much easier just to play in the beginning and the more I drew, the bigger my smile became! After awhile, it was just a matter of which one should I do first?
"Francine" just begged me to make her though! (She told her her name as I was doing her......you know how these quilts speak to us!) She seemed to be the epitome (at least in my head) of fun quilters everywhere, always ready with pins in her mouth and tape measure ready:
You know the process........a new package of Steam a Seam ready and able, plus scissors handy!
Little by little, I just plugged away:
I LOVE to get to the end though........it's so exciting to see the difference between the drawing and finished quilt:
And check out those eyes:
Incidentally, Francine is for sale (as will be all the ladies in the series - except the renditions of my friends, you understand). She is 14 1/2 x 18 1/2 inches, finished with a sleeve, dowel and O ring, all ready to hang, plus numbered and personally signed by me.....never to be duplicated! The first $79 plus shipping takes her home. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
