finished: 'i heart dogs with glasses' (an imrov quilt)


Teresa Duryea Wong. 2017. "I Heart Dogs with Glasses" Cotton fabric and Japanese print, improv piecing, machine quilted. 60 x 65 inches.
Its finished!My improv quilt made with dog with glasses - fabric from Japan.

I saw this fabric last year at the Houston International Quilt Festival and bought a bunch of it in different colorways. If you gonna' go for 'dogs with glasses' fabric you need the whole collection, right?


Each dog and each block is cut improv - no rules and no plan, really. I love the freedom of piecing this way. I machine quilted it in black (used almost an entire spool of Aurifil! - and if you know how big one Aurifil spool is, then you know how amazing that is!)

Each time I picked up one of these silly dogs to sew it or iron it, they made me smile. It was a very amusing project.... totally fun... no serious thoughts or worries.

The world can go its own way! I made a quilt with dogs wearing glasses.
