    Portrait of my Boxer done!

    One of our board members, Cuppi Duke, sent me this appliquéd portrait of one of my Boxers which she made up when I ordered a few patterns from her. I just finished quilting it, using smoke monofilament thread on top to FMQ around all the components of his face and around his body. Then I cut letters to spell his name and appliquéd them, then hand-quilted around them. I SID the inner border, then bound it. I gave it to my DS, since Tank is his dog. I can't wait to start on my Boxer, rocky, now! Cuppi is incredibly talented at making an appliqué picture from a photo! Check out her work on the Board if you haven't seen it yet.

    It is Cuppi duke on the board. She has that stunning portrait of the Native American girl with the flowing hair as her avatar.

    He looks wonderful. I am sitting here with one of my fur babies on my lap.

    No book, but a member of this board, screen name is cuppi duke, makes the patterns for people for a small charge from a photo, or if you aren't familiar with appliqué, maybe she will make it for you. Send her a PM if you are interested. She is really good and very helpful!!
