Back in February, I was continuing to work on my “Henna Girl” quilt and completely messed up the quilting on her face…… see the post here.
I picked it out the same day that I quilted it and then put the quilt away until after my studio was finished and I felt comfortable going back to it. It just so happened that my comfort level finally returned last week!!!
After my initial disaster, one of my quilting buddies, Rosie, sent a diagram that she thought would help…..
After studying this for a while, I sat down with yet another photo of the face and started drawing in lines. After numerous attempts, I decided that this one had the most promise…..
When I got ready to do the quilting, I was nervous about trying to free-hand it again so marked some guide dots to help me along…..
This made the quilting much easier to do and, in a very short time, I was thru……
I finished the background using a ruler to quilt parallel lines at various widths.
The final step was to add the beads. I had original planned to use beads that I had on hand, but ended up at Joann’s one day and found the PERFECT beads…….
So….I am happy to present “Mahek the Market Girl”…….
