Finished! The final touch was brainstorming with my family to come up with a title. I have a great family! It’s always fun to toss out ideas and talk about the various possibilities. Our final choice is “Sheer Whim.”

This quilt came about on a whim. My husband and I were going camping in our motorhome for a couple days. About an hour before we were ready to leave I decided to bring some art supplies with me. I took some pictures, printed out one, grabbed some fabric and fusible webbing, my iron, some crayons and inks, and away we went. By the time we came home, I had a finished quilt top and some foggy ideas of where to go next.

    Again, just beautiful. I love how you’ve combined ‘traditional’ art techniques with fabric art to make this beautiful portrait quilt. Thanks for sharing.
