Project QUILTING 11.6 Vibrant and Vivacious

This is the final challenge of  Season 11!!  I'll admit, I look forward to these challenges every other week.  The have been so much fun and have pushed me out of my comfort zone and I've found how much fun it is to get out of self-imposed box!  Thank you so much to Kim of Persimmon Dreams for running the show, getting so many cool prizes and encouraging us all to stretch ourselves in ways I, for one, would never have thought of!!

Vibrant and Vivacious is definitely something we all could use in our lives right now as COVID-19 sweeps across the globe!  So, with that in mind, this is what I came up with:
I just couldn't resist!!  I found a pattern at Craft Passion and since I couldn't print it out, I used her measurements to create my own pattern.

I used a bit of my fusible fleece which gives an extra layer of protection, since I don't have any sort of filter.
I had to put some psychedelic lips on my mask and added a frog and a monkey for a bit more whimsy.   I did a blanket stitch with my machine around the lips and frog...the monkey just got straight stitching close to the edge as his arm and tail were a bit thin.
I did an X of quilting so the lining didn't bag and get funky.
I used stretched out ponytail holders for the stretchies that go around my ears.  I use these pony tail holders just about every day as my hair is at my waist and I want it out of my way!  I'm so glad I saved them and found a use for them!!
I used scraps for everything, except the gorgeous lime green fabric.  Do you think this is Vibrant and Vivacious?  I'm loving the lips and the lime green!!!

Thank you again, Kim!!  I have had a blast with this since December!!!  When does Season 12 start???
