Dog Portraits

My dog portraits (to be fair, pet portraits) are being done more in my ‘Fabrications’ technique. Please go to that page (click here) to see the latest.

“Ebou” is a commissioned quilt completed in early 2013. It’s about 2′ by 3′, and  incorporates machine piecing, hand applique and embroidery, and hand quilting. Original photo below.  SOLD



“Now Go and Play”, a memorial quilt for my friend Ali, who lost her black lab Jasmine in the fall of 2011.  In this quilt, Jasmine is urging her best friend Owen, one of Ali’s two other dogs, to go and play with all the other dogs who frequent the Ridgecrest Conference Center, where Ali and I hike regularly. About 2′ by 3′, this quilt incorporates machine piecing, extensive hand applique and embroidery, machine embroidery, reverse applique, and hand quilting. Sorry about the poor photo quality. Private Collection

Oscar’s Swimming Hole, Graybeard Trail, Montreat NC ~ This is a portrait of my friend David’s Plott hound Oscar, aka ‘Tuddi’, completed in 2010. My first serious dog quilt. About 3 feet by 4 feet. Original photo below.    This quilt won a Merit Award for Most Appealing Animal Imagery at the 2011 Asheville Quilt Show.  This quilt is for sale – $480


Toby and George ~ I started this as a crazy quilt to use up a bunch of leftover scraps, and it evolved into a portrait of my dog Toby and his much larger best friend George. First, and only, foray into machine embroidery. Small, only about 2 feet by 3 feet. Original photo below.  Private Collection
