Thread: Pic of dog top couch throw is completed

    I finished the top of the WH (now a couch throw). I had one of my "signature moments" so had to rearrange my borders. I wanted the outside border to be brown and the inside blue but didn't have enough of the brown for the wider, larger border so there came the "design change".

    I am pleased with it but am scared to death to put it on my gracie and quilt it.

    The pic of the dog is made up of 16 - 6 inch squares (4 x 4) so is 24 x24 inches. I decided not to add a window pane effect cuz I don't think the seams are that noticeable (sp?). Am tempted to put a crystal in the bottom of the white of the eye.

    Also, including this quilt top, I have never sewn a half square triangle, I am a little shy of that type, afraid of the bias edges and the stretch. I use Jodi Barrows SnS for triangles.

    The dog was an ordinary photo I took on my digital camera, brought it into Corel PhotoPaint and enlarged it to 24" x 24", then cut that into 6" squares, 16 (4 x 4) of them. So, the center pic of the dog ended up being about 23 3/4 inches square.

    How clever are you...that is truly inspirational...I have just bought a better printer to get into photo fabric printing...so I will be bookmarking this for future reference.

    Your boxer is gorgeous by the way, fantastic work :D :D :D

    Really neat quilt!!! I love how you did the photo of the dog. I have never tried to do anything that big, but you have inspired me! The border is great. I am glad that you did not have enough of one of your fabrics to do the border the way you originally planned. I think this border is so much better!! Thanks for posting!!
