Quilt University Class

This month I am doing a course with Quilt University on Fabric Portraits with Marilyn Belford and this is the result so far.  You start with a line drawing of a photo.

Build up the face with fabric - following the shading.

Slowly she appears............

Put the hair on & this is as far as I am - it's not perfect but I am really happy with the technique & the result so far - still two lessons to go.  If you've never tried it - have a look at the  classes offered - something might appeal.  I have done about 4 classes over the years & always found it's quite easy to follow each lesson. The tutor is available on the discussion forum and have always found them very helpful.
