    Love your tubing lady Nancia! She's more modern and abstract looking without a face. But if you did the suggestion of a face, then she would be great too! I like how Judith said "I can really see her face in my mind already" because it is that way for me too. Yes! Please tell us how you created her!

    debbyg is my sister from another mother! i love her work!! and i love her- she is so sweet!!

    face, no face, whatever! i came home from grocery shopping and the cat was sound asleep on the painting! lol. i do not want to do it again, so i will pull out the sticky roll and pray. or pray, and then get out the sticky roll. i do see some tweaking i will do- shape her leg a little and shorten the closest foot. then i'll sandwich it, bits of quilting, and done. i think the reason you can sort of see her face, those of you who can, is because i painted the eye and hated it so painted over it. i also didn't like her nose, and that's why it isn't there! i used acrylics and stain pens. i wanted texture to the tube and the pen gave me just the look i wanted. the umbrella will be a separate piece, 3d and added on.
    i am rolling on the floor laughing--- i gave the poor girl two right feet ! look closely!

    Can't wait for it to arrive rwquilts

    I have yours ready to quilt and will do that this week so it should be ready to mail early next week. Have just enjoyed 4 delightful days at our fishing shack, snug by the woodfire as it was super cold outside. Got plenty of sewing done though, now back to reality and real work

    Wouldn't it make a humorous quilt?!

    Krystyna - humorous quilts would be a fun category some month eh?

    DebbyG your little brown church quilt is wonderful - it reminds me of a brown transferware plate we had that had a church in the middle.

    Nancia, thanks for the info on how you painted your lady!

    WOW! loving all the beautiful work here! It never would have occurred to me to paint a quilt. That is one reason I love this board. It gets me thinking outside the box. I just took a class on thread painting, again, it would not have occured to me to do it over a pieced block. Oh, to have the time to try all the things I want to try. Keep the creativity rolling!!

    ok, solved the foot problem by painting over the ties with 'water'. i put a face on her, bleah. and 96'd the umbrella, both size, and why would you have an umbrella while tubing? at first i saw her in a pool, but realized she'd have more fun tubing! that's the way pictures go sometimes! working title is ' i remember golden summers'. feel free to suggest a better one! we are having a wonderful day of rain, so the ladies and i took a nap. woke up and wasn't sure if it was tuesday or wednesday , so called dh. my computer wasn't working and i needed a reality check. i live a very loosely structured life, lol!

    One for the list of themes! But ... give me a little more definition on that one. What would a humorous quilt be?
