Faces -- A small wall hanging no larger than 28-inch square. Pull colorful fabric from your stash for the background. Next is to form your face. Fun to have 1/2 and 1/2 of different fabrics for the face. A nice size for the head would fill a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper. Add a mouth, nose, and eyes along with a neck and you are almost there. The fun part is making hair or hats. Add to the background things that represent you and your hobbies on fabric. It is best to use a poster board and attach things with pins or if you use steam a seam II it usually sticks without ironing. Make sure you like it before you iron everything down. I will be showing examples of faces from the The Quilt Show. If you are a star member, you can go to the forum and see all the faces that have been sent in to the show. I will have some tips and hints as we go along. Have fun with this and let yourself go.
Circles and More Circles
For this challenge you will be working with circles. How big and how small are you willing to go? Incorporate circles on the quilt or the quilt itself. There are no size restrictions. From small to large it is up to you. The more circles the better. At some time during the year, I will show some tools to help cut out circles and form circles to be sewn or appliqued onto a quilt No bags or clothing please. Quilt back must have a hanging sleeve and a label. Be sure to cover your name on the back of the quilt with fabric or paper before handing it in.
