12x12 Challenge January

This is my January page for the 12x12 Challenge for Quilt Studio. My theme is "Faces From The Past". I wanted to do some hand embroidery on each page but I signed up for the challenge only a week or so before my page was due and did not have time to do all I wanted to on this one. I hope that each page for the next 11 months will have at least some hand embroidery on it. This is my maternal grandmother. I do not have any pictures of my grandfather (that I know of) so my next page will probably be one of my parents. I am looking forward to seeing how each page developes.

Your page is beautiful. This will be such a wonderful future family heirloom. I've done a fabric book about my Granny with photos so I'm especially drawn to yours. Are you acquainted with "Legacy" magazine? It has wonderful examples to using fabric arts to make tributes to our family legacies.

I hope you will explore some hand embroidery. I am also making a fabric book for the challenge and am doing mine with hand embroidery. Welcome aboard!

Great job! I like the way you used fabric that blends with the photo color.
