Abstract Challenge Self-Portrait

20cm x 20cm - machine quilted

I´m a member of an online group that is doing a monthly challenge. The quilt has to be 8x8 inches or 20cm x 20cm and the theme is given in the beginning of the month.
For September the theme is "Self-Portrait" and I couldn´t resist to join in, although I had the felted piece waiting for me to work on it.
I first did another version of the self-portrait but it is in the trash already. So I started the second version yesterday and here it is. It consists of different layers, shapes, colours, materials just like me. So, that´s what I look like *grin*
The background is felt, than I added some pieces of various fabrics, added tulle, quilted on it, cut out some of the tulle and quilted some more and finally added those round pieces. I got them years ago from a friend. They were originally small shisha mirros, but the mirrors fell off and what´s left is those nice round thingies.
