What are you most proud of? I think the shading on the face and hands works well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I initially had trouble staying on the black line when sewing the top fabric. It might be a good idea to have a practice run on another piece of fabric first. Also, if you are using a person's photo, choose a photo that has some light value changes or shading to prevent a flat look on the finished piece.

Beautiful job! The shading and quilting make it so true to life.

Just looking over all of the students work again that has been completed from this class. I must say that this piece is beyond beautiful. I cannot find the words to describe how I feel about it. WOW.

I love this! Wonderful craftsmanship (? craftswomanship?), and the spirit of the woman shines through!
