Before I go any further I have to admit that my Harry Potter quilt (or should I say quilts as both my kids want one) is still not finished. I revisit it as often as I can but it very exhausting as the faces take a long time and are very complex.
Which brings us to today. I made this for my dad for his 80th birthday late last year. It is a portrait of his mum. There was meant to be one of his dad as well but I am still not happy with the pattern so it remains undone. Not enough hours in the day.
This is the finished block, which I turned into a wall hanging. I think she looks young and beautiful.
Dad was very happy with the result.
What a stunning piece, Michelle! What a lovely family heirloom it will make. :)ReplyDelete
What a beautiful piece! I bet your father was very flattered and pleased! How about a Johnny Depp BOM?? Your faces are so life like! Be careful you could end up in a magazine like Jen! :)ReplyDelete
