What you will need
Q&A with LeilaniB
Where do you find skin toned fabrics? I'm just learning to make portrait quilts and I'm having trouble finding the fabric colors for skin. Do use color pencils, paint or some other medium to add shading?
I had some hand dyed fabrics from a friend. Some are very fine prints. I like to find mottled fabrics, marble dyed etc. For the faces, as I have on all my projects, I hand sketch in coloured pencil.
