Fabric Faces

When I attended the International Quilt Festival in Houston this past year, I was in awe of the masterpiece quilts of faces and people. The intricate facial features made from fabric, expressing emotion, just blew me away.
Lately, I have been playing with fabric scraps to make small quilt blocks. I use a fabric collage technique to make landscape scenes. Today, I decided to try to make a fabric face collage. I used the smallest of scraps to shape the face, hair, and shoulders. I used FMQ for the cheeks and facial features. Then I drew over the FMQ with fabric marker for the eyes and to outline the nose. The pink lips are from a super tiny piece that I cut from a pink and white selvage. The piece is embellished with pearl seeds. The block is a 4.5″ square.

This is such a great challenge for me.There is a long way to go and so much to learn. But, it sure is fun to try new things.
