The hexagonal pieces will form part of the background. I do love this pattern, but it is a beast to piece, so I am taking the lazy art quilter route and fusing instead, and so far I am liking the somewhat aged, traditional feel of this part. The face is harder. It is not easy (at least for me) to create a recognizable rendering of a real person.
I think you will be seeing more of this as I progress. This was a tease, just to let you know that I am working on something.
