What are you most proud of? How all the quilting in the background "popped" the sand lily.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have an extra spool of black thread on hand if you're going to do a lot of quilting! Also, test pencil colors on a piece of your scrap fabric to see if you like their effect before coloring on your piece.

Lola. Thank you for your kind words. My husband tells me my foto doesn't do the project justice. Will put up a new foto later tonight. As for a face to do next (already have the batik) I spent a little time today searching through my grandkids fotos. We have a program on our older PC that will print as a pencil line drawing. I'm hoping I can ask it to print out 200 % and I won't have to head to the copy store. You'll be seeing more from me!
