I made more progress yesterday on my latest quilt. I added detail to the eyes and the ears. I still have her mouth (which will be hard — I picked out some fabrics today I think might work), the hair, and her sweater (which I will not recreate from the original photograph). I love to see the eyes come alive — one of the best parts.

This is a large piece  & I had to take this picture standing on a chair — which is causing some distortion in the photograph — but I currently work with everything pinned down to a table. I don’t want to disturb that at this point in the process — it might throw off the alignment of remaining pieces. Just keep in mind that this is lying flat — and even though I am elevated, there is an angle from the camera’s perspective as I can’t get any higher without moving it.
