This is Georgie.
Georgie was created by making a pattern from a photo provided by the client, a good well lit photo, with both highlights and low lights works best for this process. Each pattern piece is cut out from a coordinating cotton fabric and then adhered to a colored background. The piece is adjusted over and over again to be sure the portrait correctly represents the subject. The finer details are added using acrylic paint and enhanced with thread painting. All pieces are then machine stitched into place. The final stages are to quilt the entire piece, back the portrait with cotton fabric, then bind it all together and add a hanging system.
