I took a design class for three years and focused on quilts with leaves - so I was referred to as the "She who quilts leaves."
Anyway - it really doesn't look like me - I used two of my favorite techniques - the curved piecing of the bark - and fused leaves - I fuse the leaves then cut out the veins - I like this method for pop value - but in order to keep the leaves in place I have to quilt really close together - usually lines or a grid. After that I had to add eye lashes - and a little bling to the hair. I guess adding bling is another thing I do often. The best place in the to buy sequins is http://www.ccartwright.com/. Final measurement 12x14
This project was way outside my box - actually I've always looked at the portrait quilts but never wanted to do one - so thanks for pushing me. It was tempting to skip this one but my personal goal is do do everyone one of these challenges.
