This is my daughter-in-law's portrait (Delphine), Amaury's mother, for those who follow my family gallery...I'm trying to use other fabrics each time,and that's not so easy ! free motion stitching and some paint touch....

Hello again!

Are you also good in drawing portrets? It seems that you've really got the feeling for it! I like the colors in this one. The hair is really awesome.

Difficult to find matching colors, I agree. But your work is  very a live! I hope you have a large family...

Greetings, Anneke

Hello, Anneke !

thanks for your comment.  You're right I've always loved drawing portraits,and Maria Elkins' method gave me the opportunity to translate them into quilts ! Other family members are waiting for their portraits, be sure of it !

Greetings from Spain, Josette.

Hello Josette,

I love the colours you used and the metallic threads give it something extra. It is beautiful.

The geometric fabric is such an unusual choice, but it sure works.  Nice foresight.
