This quilted piece is for the QAK quiltography 2015-2016 challenge. This is piece number three based on the photo below provided by the Lexington photography club. For my interpretation, I gave the girl red hair to represent the red from the leaves. After quilting and attaching to my canvas I added leaves. The leaves are made from fussed fabric and quilted then hand sewn to the quilt.
Here is a picture of the pieces fused together without any stitching.
