I created this quilt based on a photo I took of my son Ryan just before he began a career in firefighting.  His hair and beard are now quite short!  The quilt is machine appliquéd using a small zigzag stitch and I used a fusible web.  

I would love some feedback!  Thanks!

  1. I love this portrait quilt – such character and expression captured in fiber.  The hair and the way you executed it adds so much interest to the piece also. Hope you do more portraits.
