Welcome to those who are clicking through from the Blogger's Quilt Festival! Many thanks to Amy for hosting and organizing it all. I'm entering two quilts, this one is in the Art Quilt category.
These are based on my photographs of the dogs which were digitally manipulated and then printed on fabric. They were heavily threadpainted, then each panel was quilted individually (on my Janome 7700). The background is a whole separate quilt, in which silhouettes of the dogs are thread sketched via bobbin quilting in the background. The remainder of the background was free motion quilted. Each quilted dog portrait is mounted on the background by stitching only the top edge down, so the panels hang freely. To see more posts about this project, click on the Dog Portrait tag.
The label text reads:
"The Dogs" Bullett, Missy, and Pumpkin. Now there are four and Pumpkin is gone but they are all always in our hearts.
At some point I'll have to do a project incorporating the new two (Bentley and Shooter), but for now these three are staring out at me, filled with personality.
