Group Quilt

Several months ago, my Fibervision group got together for a funny face portrait workshop led by Rene Jennings. Our friend and Fibervision member, Susan West had just lost her home of 25 years in the Tea Fire. We decided to combine these small quilts into a group quilt for her. Each portrait is an 8-1/2 x 11 finished quilt that is attached to a quilted backing. It turned out great! Here's the finished quilt.
We gave the quilt to Susan yesterday at the Fibervision meeting. Needless to say, she loved it. It's probably the most laughing she's done in the the last 6 months. If you want to see a close up of my quilt, look here and here is the second funny face I created.

Thanks, Judy, for sharing Susan's "friendship" quilt with your visitors... I had the opportunity to see this quilt in person and it is fantastic! The colors are so vibrant, and the faces are so much fun with LOTS of detail that you can't HELP but smile! Susan is such an upbeat person and I know she your efforts with this quilt mean a lot to her.
