In viewing pictures posted so far I see that almost all are abstract. I'm afraid I am hopelessly literal and representational...LOL.
Although I was really nervous about the concept of a self portrait in the beginning, this was a super fun quilt to make! Thanks for the challenge (and the push) Carole!
I began with a rough pencil sketch, had it blown up, and went from there.
Favorite techniques used...freeform cutting and fusing; beading; using ALL kinds of fabrics etc. and just generally letting go and playing. Thus "In The Zone" my own personal nirvana!
This quilt is considerably larger than my past challenges at 21" by 29". I haven't finished the edges yet. Any suggestions?
As always, comments and critiques welcome!...Cherie
