Working on the Caterpillar
I began the construction of the foreground for the confetti quilt that I have been working on for the past week. After choosing the fabric for the body I fused it to the back of the same fabric . I did this for two reasons. If some of the back happened to show I wanted it to be the same as the front. The extra fabric also gave me some stabilization for the thread painting that you will see later. In this photo I have fussy cut and fused the black spots to the caterpillar.
We have family coming for the Labor Day Weekend and I am headed to Charlotte next week for a lecture and two-day workshop. The portrait to the left is a sample that I've been working on as I give a demo for the class. I decided to finish it and start another one for the upcoming demo.
This beautiful young lady is one of my granddaughters. I have added the finished portrait below and the only difference you will see is the catch-light in the eyes.
What a difference that little detail makes.
Hoping to blog tomorrow about and upcoming exhibit at the Pickens Museum of Art.
