This is my entry for the Design Indaba Superstars Competition (http://www.designindaba.com/superstars/recent-entries
). The idea is to take a photo of yourself in profile and then fill it in with anything artistic in such a way that it tells about yourself.
My profile picture
My finished artwork. I used patchwork, mola applique and 'quilt stitching'. It isn't really a quilt because there is no batting in, only three layers of fabric.
Here is the patched layer before it was inserted between the two black layers
Detail of the cutting before I did the topstitcing. I just folded the edges under and fixed it with hemstitch in black thread.
A close-up of the finished work
The array of coloured thread I used for the stitching.
