face #1 by melissa averinos, 2014

After creating a large raw-edge appliqué self-portrait, I challenged myself to make a face quilt that was pieced. This image was not based on a photograph or drawing and no computers or charts were involved. I drew on my experience as a painter to improvise with fabric squares and rectangles to create the image as I would a painting. I've been making my whole life and when I finished this quilt, I cried with happiness. It's my favorite thing I've ever made. west barnstable, Massachusetts, United States 90" x 80"
