Green lady #3 - Part One

I had one more picture that I had saved of a green lady with a botanical look.  I decided that I would make it up in an art quilt to go along with my other 2 green garden ladies.  This picture was torn out of a magazine that was advertising a  Gudrun Sjoden dress called "Rigmor".  The designer is from Sweden and I didn't save the name of the magazine or the date.  I think it was from a British magazine from 2018.

Anyway, I traced the picture and had it enlarged to be the same height as my other two green garden ladies.  Here is the picture on my design wall with components pinned on top.

I decided to make a garden scene on the bottom third of the art quilt.  So, I got out my sketch book and put my ideas down on paper.   

I started making the face and hands first.  Here they are with fusible backing all ready to add to the quilt top.

You may have noticed that I didn't do the eyes on the face.  My first quilt had a headpiece covering the eyes and I liked that effect.  The philodendron leaf will cover that part on this quilt. 

I hope you like it so far.
