Graffiti Quilting

I made another small quilt this past weekend to practice more graffiti quilting.


 
I darkened these pictures a bit so the quilting would show up better. You can see the flannel backing in this next picture.

Before I started this one, I looked at this tutorial on Karlee Porter’s web site. I used my dry erase board to doodle a bit before going to the quilt.


I think it helped to get into the flow of it. This will get finished off with a machine binding for my other grand dog, Bambi.


You didn’t think I would make a quilt for one and not the other, did you? Their momma, my Daughter #2, will be deploying this summer. She has a house sitter who will also take care of the dogs. I thought if she slept with these little quilts, they would smell like her and be a comfort to her babies while she is gone.

    Those doodles are pretty amazing eye candy! They’re quite a pleasure to look at. What a great idea for the deployment dog quilts, to comfort the “kids” in her absence.

  5. This is looking sooo good!!!! I have never tried this style of quilting before but I think I want to now. I find I have to turn off all my studio lights to get the quilting to show up!
