    My First Design: Pity!

    Hello! How are you? I hope that very well!
    I tell them that in October 2010, I took a course of Fusible Appliqué, with Ms. Shirley MacGregor (a renowned American quiltera), who was walking by Argentina. And I had the immense good fortune to know and take courses with her.
    This in particular, taught us to make our own design to use then.
    I was away from home (1,200 km.) and missing my "daughter" hairy: my Weimaraner dog named Pity.
    And the unconscious betrayed me! Took me to draw it and translate it into a mini quilt!
    I sharing with you some pictures: 1) Step by step of my design, 2) I and Ms. MacGregor, 3) from the mini quilt that now looks on our wall and 4) my daughter taking enjoying the soft winter sun!
    I hope you enjoy the images and having them stolen a smile!
    I wish all to spend a beautiful day!
    A strong hug!

    Love your quilt, love your step by step photos of creation and love your inspiration, your hairy "daughter" Pity. What a wonderful photo of her.

    Sweet. It looks great.

    Really lovely how you incorporated the negative space into your design! Both the applique Pity and the living, breathing Pity are beautiful.
