Pets on Quilts Show – a Dog named “Neo”

Welcome to everyone visiting from Lily Pad Quilting’s Pets on Quilts Show.   This is my second entry to the Pets on Quilts Show – you can read about my first entry here.  Make sure that you pop over and check out all of the wonderful quilts in the Quilt Show and vote for your favorites.  I’d love it if you voted for mine, if you’re so inclined.

Category entered: Dog-Themed Quilts
Techniques:  fused applique, thread sketching, surrealistic colors
Finished size: approx. 13 x 16 inches

This is one of the first pet quilts I made (in 2011).  I started with this photo of Neo, and used Picasa to posterize the photo.  I really enjoyed the challenge of using surrealistic colors – where value is more important than color.  You can read more about my portrait process here.
