Puppy Portrait

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Pillow Puppy Link to website or photo What are you most proud of? I like the fabric combinations and I really had fun with the thread painting. I used a stabilized batting when I did the thread painting and then removed any batting that wasn't involved in the puppy. When I quilted the piece, I outlined the main sections of the puppy (ears, eyes, nose, muzzle, mouth). I think the combination of these techniques really make the puppy stand out from the background. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I had the pattern enlarged to a 16 inch square (original is 8") and, for me, the larger size was much more manageable for the paper piecing.
