Faces and a bit more of the Party Quilt

Greetings, thanks for dropping by.  Today I have a couple of older sketches of faces for the Friday Face Off (hosted by DVArtist.)  Last week I used a male face, so today I am using a couple of female faces from the same time period. 
These ladies are more sketches from imagination and memory.  They are not anyone in particular, but simply my creations. 

Next up are two more sections of the Party Quilt that I am slowly creating. 

You have seen part of this in the past.  When the photo was taken, this were laid together while I was 
making decisions as to how it would be joined. 

This next piece started as a wonky square in a square block.(red, blue, yellow, lavender.) 
That block was layered with a solid piece of batik and cut on a rough diagonal.
The pieces were switched and joined into two blocks. 
Then those blocks were joined. 
I went on a search for a photo of the block before it was sliced, but to no avail.
Here is the result of the joined pieces.

It is "weird" and I love it. 

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

I love the way you sketch these faces. I have tried this style and it doesn't work for me. LOL It works for you though. Ohhh this quilt is so brilliant. I know how much work goes into this and I applaud you. It is simply gorgeous. Thanks for sharing with FFO but don't forget to link up with Mr. Linky. Have a great day today.

Your lady on the left looks like me ... my glasses are forever sliding down my nose :) I love your "wonky" quilt piece. It takes courage to be wonky and you certainly have courage and talent. I still keep wishing that someday, down the road, you will have time to do my silly little piece (wonky would be allowed :), but I do appreciate why you can't and still love coming over here to see what you are up to.

I may have said this before, but your face sketching reminds me of my mother's. I think your finished Party Quilt will be a delight to see. Have a good week of creating, Gene!
