Can I come out to play?

 

A sad yellow lab only able to stick his nose out of a hole in the fence - let him out to play!

This bit of quilted fabric art was made in March and I'm entering it to the pets on quilts linky party under the dog themed quilts.

There are 10 photos here so if your browser is slow, sorry but I wanted to show the process.

 

 

I started out with the nose, traced the basic lines and quilted with black thread.

 

Then with colored pencils started to color.

 

And shade and blend

 

The nose was carefully cut out and put with wood fence looking fabrics, trouble with the top of the nose though, it just stops .......... Hmmmmmmmm.

 

Tried adding more fence to cover - nah!

 

Make the hole bigger? Now his nose looks wrong :-/

 


So I added a chunk of nose, colored it and quilted it - yes!

 

Quilted happy dog words on the wood

 

Here's the back - lots of quilting

Woof! Woof! - happy tail dance!
