This quilt top was made in Therese May's in person Quilted Portrait workshop. It really came to life in thanks to all the fabulous free motion filler designs and confidence gained from Leah Day, Angela Walters, Frieda Anderson, Wendy Butler Berns and Ann Petersen's Craftsy classes. Thank you!!!

I love this quilt! Your puppy has such personality and I think your intricate quilting really adds to that. How did you make the eyes - it appears that they are some kind of button?

Thanks Emafish. Yes--my puppy certainly has a colorful personality so it was fun making a quilt that reflects her energy and enthusiasm. And you are correct-each eye is made with 2 buttons (a light colored button down first with a smaller black button for the pupil. The hardest part was matching up all the holes with the front and the back of the quilt (4 buttons total!!) My poor fingers!
