Frida Kahlo #1

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Frida Kahlo #1 Link to website or photo www.tovadiandean.com What are you most proud of? I made a lot of mistakes with this first one, but I see all art as a series of problems to solve. I'm proud I used the photo of the first one, mistakes and all. What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are some small pieces to cut out. I fused almost all of the pieces with a sewable bond. I traced each piece onto the paper backing before cutting. Small, sharp scissors and either tweezers or those small surgical clamps help, too.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton fabrics
  • fabric fuse
  • beads
  • pellon fleece for the batting. Embroidery thread. Silk flowers. Patience.
