4 part face

I started this in a class on art quilts.  Each of the 4 students drew our face, we cut it in quarters, and exchanged them.  Then we were taught various ways to embellish the face.  It is about 12" x 13". 

I like the quarters and the various ways I worked at making the face.  I like how they don't go together but they do.  

I don't know what else to do with this.  For now, I have it pinned to the wall in my sewing room.  She just watches but never gets any attention for herself!

Wow!  Great Faces!  Just needs some earrings and maybe a "necklace" or a suggestion of a necklace!  I personally would love to have her (I would name her Sybil) watching over me!  ;)

I love the idea of a whole face and your use of different techniques in each quarter.  My suggestion would be to add some depth to the piece perhaps with threadwork and other embellishments.  Good luck!  Lynne

What a great project and the results are just wonderful!  Very interesting piece and really fun.  I do hope you finish it and post it when it's done.  Yes, maybe a bit of quilting and a few simple embellishments but really....it's great!

Since I'm pretty sure you started this piece in my art quilt class, I had to let you know what a great job you did!   I had done a couple of these "fractured faces" and realized how much fun it was, so I created the class for people who felt that making an art quilt was a daunting task.  I am thrilled at the creativity my students use and the fun they have doing it. 

I would  bind this piece with with some of the bright colors used in the body of it.  Embellish away!  Have a great time and thank you for giving me a chance to see your delightful piece.

She's a charmer for sure! I would stipple the background quite closely and then add coulourful double or triple deckle-cut borders.

Yes, Bonnie this is yours.  :)  I'd sure love to know about other classes you have coming up.  You are a super teacher!  Glad to know you are on QA too.

For years I have tried to get my quilt group to do each of our faces but no one wanted to try.  Guess I'll just do my own although I like the idea of doing each other and cutting them up.  I did do one of my niece who has wild long curly red hair that was really fun to do in batiks.  I love it!
