I started this year thinking I would do some work that challenged me and was a bit different from what I am naturally drawn to doing, so thought i would do the Earth - patterns theme. I made a small quilt based on the patterns at Giant's Causeway in Ireland. It was grey! I looked at it for a day or two and thought it was awful - just not me! so I made another one. Now I am much happier. I am going to develop the Earth - people theme and try to make 6 quilts all with faces on. This will really challenge me as I often try to miss out the faces and do a back view of people. Who knows - it might just be too much of a challenge. I might try an applique quilt next.
I painted the face and then appliqued the turban and clothes. A technique I have used a few times.
