Camilla is a wonderful and very clever tutor. Here is a sample of one of her quilts exhibited at the NZ Quilt Symposium at Taupo 2013
When it comes to faces - she is very clever. Please visit Camilla's website: healyourlife.co.nz
So when Coastal Quilters advertised that she was running a class - I made sure I could attend.
The objective is to cartoonify friends or family. I found it quite tough drawing the faces in my piece. Camilla asked if I was emotionally attached to my subjects. True, I am so this explained the difficulty I was having.
Here is my current progress.
|Photograph taken several years ago of my Uncle, Aunt, my Brother and myself|
|I have drawn cartoon characters of my Uncle and Aunt.|
This piece will be their Christmas Gift this year. Lol - No my Aunt doesn't have
a beard - I had a lot of trouble with the chin.
|I have chosen the wrong side of this Kiwiana Koru fabric|
as the background to embroider on.
|Beginning of embroidering.|
Great fun class, bit emotional but once I had their faces drawn it came together quickly.
25th of February 2015. I've just realised that I hadn't posted my completed piece from attending this class.
