Frog Lady is the last of this series of faces in fabric. She came about because my friend Erin wanted to come over and make a face with me. I went through each step with her until we got to the hair and she had to go. It was a fun afternoon!
Erin is doing a self portrait for our Undercover Quilters group. She loves bright colors and especially purple, so it was really cool that she found the perfect Australian print for her hair.
I wanted to have some fun with the hair, so I pulled this African print from the stash and fussy cut the curls to do a wild hairdo. I had also just finished with Maria's frog shirt and had some scraps lying around. It seemed natural to add the little frogs to her cheeks, though I did just pin them on for a while to make sure I liked them.
Below you'll find a bunch of hair photos that all look a lot alike. I spent quite a while tweaking the curls until I got them just so and could fuse them on.
Finally it was time to quilt it. I really have come to like the adventure of the quilting. I no longer worry about whether I'm doing the "right thing" when it comes to the quilting lines. I just do it and each one is a little different. I have to say, though, I love the pink eyelashes on this one!
