Default A Little Boy and His Dog

I just finished this little guy and have'nt got him quilted yet. I used mostly hand dyed fabrics. My inspiration came from a painting by Jim Daly of a little boy with his puppy in front of a barn. I wanted to have some flowers and sunshine so changed it some. I am quite happy with it which is unusual for me. I usually pick my pictures to death and find all of the faults. I hope you enjoy it. It measures 24 x 21 inches. The second picture is my inspiration.

Thank you. I forgot to resize my picture so it cut off one side of the border.

WOW! It is just incredible, cuppi. Absolutely great work. Love it. I know just what you mean about finding fault with your own work,I do the same. I only see what is wrong and not what is OK
