Great Beginnings

I am feeling really good about the start of this quilt. Each day I get a little bit done and then I put it back on the design wall.  I have so many things to think about on it. Like the background, I haven't even thought about the background.  I would like it to be a print that doesn't distract from the portrait but I am not sure yet what that will be.
I also can't wait to start sewing all those pieces down. And I plan to do some thread painting in the hair, especially in the gray area. I just need to finish that little spot near the eye.

A couple of days passed and I was able to finish piecing the entire face. The next step will be at the sewing machine.
I will post the next stage as soon as I can find a little bit more time to work,. You'll see
