Finally Finished - Green Man
I am pleased with the way he looks. And I am still trying to think of a real name for the quilt. Green Man seems sort of ..... dorky. The Red Man quilt ended up being Consternation.
Maybe this fellow should be Apprehension..... or Suspicion....or....
I guess I will know when I come up with the right name.
One of the big questions with this style of quilting is always how much quilting is needed. The individual pieces are fused and need no stitching to hold the edges in place. This makes Quilt Police really really nervous! But since they are always confused by my work anyway - what do I care?
I tried a slightly different method of binding and I like it. Very simple. Just attach the binding and turn to the back. I think a border would have been way too much for this guy.
Should I do another portrait next - or something completely different - like a plant..... hmmmmm..... barbara
