The quilting has begun. I started on the easiest thing first: the green sweater. I decided to use three values of green to quilt it. I’m quilting it very close together because I want it to contrast with the areas of trapunto. I haven’t done that before, so we’ll see how that works out!
After the sweater and shirt were quilted, I started in on the skin tones. I began with the arm and hand. Just a bunch of “simple” cylinder shapes, right? Again, I used three values of beige to enhance the three dimensionality.
Now, on to the face. For me, that’s always the hardest part.
