    Okay. I've had this Memorial Quilt stuck in my head for a while now and it needs to come out!! I'm getting headaches from trying to figure out what I should do about these faces!! I'm no good with faces!! Sould I just leave them blank or embrodiery or use a little fabric paint and paint them? What would you suggest? Please remember that this is a WIP and is no where near being finished. I'll also attach the photo that inspired me. Or if you think its hopeless and I should just chunk the whole thing.... tell me that too.

    Leave them blank. let the viewer envision there own loved ones face there. Great start BTW.

    Nice idea.

    The only suggestion I have for the faces - maybe use different shades of skin colors to suggest all the nationalities/races that serve in our armed forces.

    I agree with the above, if you leave them as is any family can think of the people as their loved ones.
