Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall


I am a fan of old movies. One of my favourites is To have and have not, featuring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. These portrait quilts are based on two photographs I found online. (I have unfortunately been unable to discover who took those pictures.)

The quilts have been made using raw edge appliqué. I have tried to match the quilting to the contours of the face and body. Because I find the back of a portrait quilt supremely unattractive, I use a false backing. First I quilt the three layers: portrait (top) + batting + stiff fusible interfacing. Then I iron on a false back and quilt the picture frame through four layers: portrait + batting + interfacing + false back. Add binding as usual.
