We participated in a "Portrait Challenge" a few years ago.
Here's Mary's -
I had a couple of ideas for this challenge. I got a large charge out of this supersize badge. It still makes me laugh.
This top is machine quilted with all the "roles" I play in life. It includes the usual, wife, mother, quilter, chef, etc. in the yellow squares I put my less appreciated "roles" in the black borders - procrastinator, 50+er, wine drinker, partier and then made the little top into a pillow for my reading chair.
Here is Barb's-
I had fun making this. I used bias tape for my hair, a real barrette, snaps for eyebrows, and a wine bottle for my nose. I used baby beads in the background describing all the things that are important to me.
I made the hanger using a pant hanger and embellished it with Scrabble tiles and buttons.
Enjoy all the quilts in Amy's Quilt Festival.
