Faces in Fabric Part 3- Free Spirit

 Free Spirit

Free Spirit

Here we are at Part 3 in the Faces in Fabric series.  I call this one Free Spirit.  I loved doing the hair on this one!  I forgot to get photos earlier in the process, but if you look closely at the photos below you'll see what a difference a tweak in the hair makes. 

I became a bit more confident with the quilting here.  I like how the face came out.  Someone mentioned feeling like machine quilting this way was a bit too much for them.  If that applies to you too, I suggest taking a look at Melissa's book.  There are many examples of straight line cross hatch quilting that covers the whole piece.  I think it looks really great.  I will give that a try at some point too. 

There are two more parts of this series to come.  Meanwhile, to catch up follow these links:  Part 1, Part 2.  Just curious, would you be interested in greeting cards made from these faces?  I am considering it after getting the suggestion from one of my readers.  Thanks!
