for brea

this piece is for my niece brea, i hope she likes it. you know how teenagers are. i am going to tell her to look at this and tell me if she likes it. she saw the other michael jackson piece that i made and she likes it. the problem is i can not find the picture that i used. i did not save it on my laptop. her birthday is in february and she is a big michael jackson fan. if she does not care for this one i will give this one to my grandson and she can find a picture for me and i will make that. brea brea happy early birthday. just let me know what you want. i here you are now listening to maxwell.

more to come

all i can say is that i am having fun making these. so i guess there will be more to come. i will have to say that i like making people, animals are ok, but i find it a little harder to do animals. i realize that it is hard to do animal that have whiskers. the zebra was real hard to do. the pieces were very tiny. i should have enlarge the picture and maybe it would not have been so hard to do. my gold is to see how many i can do and to try to also do a whole person not just the face. which me luck.

my gifts were a great hit.

everyone that got a portrait quilt from me, loved them. i have made at least about 20 of them. i had a few people wanting the portrait of my grandmother, when i had only made two of her. everyone said that the quilt pieces look just like the person that it was suppose to be. my three favorites of my my family were my grandmother, father and my young cousin. i also made mya angelou, halle berry, prince, obama, michael jackson, gandhi, whoopi, michele obama, toni morrison, martin luther king, and tina turner. i love all of them except for hallie berry and mya angelou. i didn't get their faces like i wanted them to be. check it out.

grandmother , my father and cousin.

my family got their quilt pieces but the others pieces i am trying to get ready for an exhabit in february.
