Another portrait in our family cards quilting game : my son Joaquim. He's got a passion for sky observation from his early years ,that's why I free motion quilted some stars behind him. The whole quilt has been free motionned stitched. In the bottom background and his face I chose a butterfly pattern fabric. The quilting pattern in the bottom area is made of "j", like the 1st letter of his name .I realised I had unconsciously chosen a blood red color in my daughter's portrait, this time I used it again, consciously, as my children are my flesh and blood, aren't they ? thus it appears a link between them, too.
