I like it. A positive bonus using this quilt pattern lets the painted mottling show nicely.

Every previous piece similar to this, I have minimized the quilting so as not to scare people off from painting him... But I am taking a new approach this time because quilter courage to try new things is skyrocketing. I WILL begin however with how I begin on the face. This represents a monofilament outline of portions of major elements. I have NOT completely outlined eyes or mouth... the center bottom of each are left un quilted if one is going for a minimalist quilting plan. I will add more than what is seen here, but you can leave it this simple and have an interesting piece.
