    I'm taking a class online at Quilt University called Fabric Portraits. Here is my line drawing. Now I have to find fabrics! I'm sure this will require a trip to the LQS as I tend to buy bright colors that surely will not work for a face! :-D

    I must admit that the instructor had to help me with the drawing.

    That's great and very artistic. It's something I wish I knew how to do. I'm making a quilt with "images" of my daughter & her fiance on a beach blanket and because I can't make the real faces I have to make them whimsical with button eyes, over sized noses and funny mouths.I don't know if I could find the right fabrics to shade the faces, I think it would be difficult at least for me. Please post pics when done.
