Cracker Free Quilt Block Pattern
Cracker is an easy quilt block that works well for a signature quilt.
My friend Glenna, who owns our local quilt shop, Quilts 'n Stuff by Glenna is having a contest for the best quilted postcard. She is also celebrating her 20th year in business with a GREAT sale and a bead party. See her blog for more details on the sale.
I recently took a class on making quilts of faces so I attempted to make a postcard of Glenna's face for the contest. I didn't want to use "normal" colors. Glenna loves batiks so I wanted to make her face in crazy batiks.
My first two attempts went in the trash can.... In the first one, I made very bad fabric choices. Glenna's face looked green...like she was going to be sea sick...very bad.
In the second one, the features of her face seemed lopsided. I had tried to place the nose, mouth, etc. just by looking at the picture. In my third attempt, I actually traced her facial features on clear vinyl and used it as an overlay to fuse the pieces in the correct location.
