now as far as the quilting goes, i had made a comment on a quilting site that i was bored and didn't have anything to quilt. you know what happen, friends ask me to make them a portrait quilt. now i have three pieces that need to be completed by november. and racheal clark, a quilter from California also asked me to make some portraits of her grandchildren. i don't do commission quilts. but this time i am making these because i am bored. i don't like for people to wait for me to finish something. if i am in the mood to make something i will, but if i am not in the mood it is know telling when a person will get something from me.
i have been trying to do the portraits with the different colors and i have been having problems with the skin tone. i didn't like the pieces that i made. i am still working on that.
so here is a portrait of a friend's mother, for her mother's birthday that is next month. my friend tried to make it herself and couldn't make. when she comes into town i am going to take time to show her how to make these.
stitches for now
