Here's my selfportrait ! I made it happily using Maria Elkins' method ! I used thread painting stitching to blend threads and fabrics together and free motion quilting for the background ..

I love seeing your quilt. You did a beautiful job! When I do my self portrait, I'm doing it in blue, too!

Thank you for all your positive comments ! I'm especially very proud to get Maria Elkins' and Pokey's congratulations. I'm a rather lonely quilter and don't often show my works. Thanks again, I love quilting arts and its community !
