Pets on Quilts 2015


My entry is a Pet Themed Quilt.  I call this one “Sad Eyes”


This is one of my thread painted dogs. To make these I draw my sketch on  the back ground fabric.  Then I free hand cut many fabrics to add color and texture.  Once all these pieces are secure with a glue stick or fusible web I begin my transformation with thread.  Here are some pictures of my process.
