    IMHO
    I think you would have to thread paint the lines on his face

    No idea as to how to quilt it. I think it looks like the picture. Great job.

    Can't give any advise regarding quilting this, but you did a beautiful job and your sister will be very happy with this. Georgette

    Looks great!

    I think I'd add some more detail with paint pens on the face and hair.
    The eyes are coming off as a little on the red side (could be the lighting in the photo, but
    still - better to be safe than sorry). You might be able to just add a little green wash over them
    to tone down the redness.

    I love using Fabricmate pens, because you don't have to heat-set them!

    You are doing a great job so far!
