    Default Posing For The Camera

    My friend June asked me if I could make a picture quilt of her beloved dog, Brownie. After lots of e-mails and talking back and forth on the phone, this is what I came up with. This picture was important to June as Brownie has a terminal illness so I really wanted to capture her likeness. After removing the light spot on her side we got it right. She said that was just a reflection.
