For this fabric portrait, I started with a cropped photo of a female face, zooming in on one eye. Using photo-imaging software, I changed the photo to gray-scale then 'posterized' it so that there were only 5 levels of value. I then selected 5 fabric with appropriate values, using surreal rather than realistic colors.

The fabrics are applied with fusible applique, then zigzag stitched with coordinating threads. Thread-painting enhances the hair, eye, lashes and brow.

The finished size is 11.75 x 9.25 inches. A sleeve is sewn to the back so the quilt can be hung from a dowel.


If you would like a fabric portrait of yourself or a loved one, please send me a convo, as I love to make custom quilts! All we need to start is a photo with good contrast. The price will be based on the complexity of the design, the number of fabrics and the finished size of the portrait.
