Modified Cubism finished!


I am not the kind of person who likes to have a lot of unfinished projects laying around, so I finished this a couple of weeks ago, but saved it until V gave the go-ahead to post it.

This was an attempt at a slightly cubist look and was done in double reverse applique. Coming up with ideas and piecing are always fun to me, but quilting is a taste that I haven't acquired yet . It's a necessary component, but something I have no patience for.

It was a good challenge that Victoria set out for us.Who knew it would be so difficult to want to look at yourself for so long? It also was a change for those of us who primarily only do utilitarian-sized quilts. I can't wait to see the rest of the finishes.

I am glad you showed the back as the front the quilting is hard to see in a photo...I liked this piece before you quilted it. I really like it now...the grey side of the face is my favorite.....

Both front and back are great! Love how you did the "Say Cheese" backwards.
