Face Paiting and AccQuilt Fabric Cutter

Finally I have completed something...
This is the project I started in a class with Bonnie McCaffery a couple of weeks ago. It's my first experience with painting on fabric so overall I am pleased that I completed it.



Here's a closeup.  Bonnie's  technique explained on her book, involved applying tule over the hair but I could not find the right type of tule to have the same effect, so the hair was applied down with invisible thread in a random pattern. I also used a metallic gold thread on the hair.  On the border seam I inserted red sequins to give it a more glamours look.
One thing left to do is to label the quilt and come up with the name....Any suggestions ?




This week I received a much antecipated order from Hancock's of Paducah...





Noddy, also thought it was great ...



Its was a fabric cutter.... I got a couple of die sets.



Had a bit of a play with it.....



And ended up with these shapes...



Just to finish off , here is some words  I look at each day in my studio....
