Beautiful colors, especially on the head wrap! Also love the background quilting.
F2QuilterCathy answered:
Thanks, I couldn't decide between red, orange, purple, blue, etc., so I made it look like a silk scarf.
MotoeJo asked:
I love the back ground. I have this piece waiting to be done! Keep up the good work!!
F2QuilterCathy answered:
Thanks, this was fun to do. The background looks like lace and flowers, kind of yellow, made sure one of the flowers landed on her cheek.
