Portrait in Blue

This one is a self-portrait in blue.

Here it is with a little more distance on it.

Even farther away ...

Note to self : I grabbed the wrong fusible for this one. Steam-a-Seam Lite, not the SAS Lite 2 with the tacky surface. The paper pattern kept falling away from the fabric and fusible during the cutting process. This one came out a bit stiff with all those layers. Stick with the SAS Lite 2 for best results.

Maria Elkins offers instructions for Beginning Portraits on the Quilting Arts website.

I have Quilt Camp coming up in 2 weeks. Yahoo! I'm hoping I can quiltwhisper the 3 portraits and finish them at Quilt Camp in October. Each of them is 8-1/2 x 11 inches, so that seems like an entirely do-able prospect.

Nice work on the portrait. It has good energy.

Where is your Quilt Camp?
