DH is a tattoo artist who likes "odd" looking skulls. The skull is his design. I wanted to make it look more natural, in shape at least, but it is what he wanted.
The close up is the fabric in the middle. I haven't quilted it yet, I'm trying to decide what to do with it. I don't know if I should do another border around the edge in a darker material, to kind of make the eyes less obtrusive, and I'm considering buying a bunch of skull iron on patches to place around the edges/border. The eyes were qppliqued on, the rest was strip pieced.
Plus, I'm not sure what color thread to use when quilting, red would show up jarringly on the white skulls, white would look awful on the red...
