There a bunch of prizes but, even better PETS!
This is Guinness...he is my best bud. This guy is one of the best dogs that I have ever had. He is sweet, quirky, loving and he makes me laugh daily!
Since I started sewing I have been looking for a pattern for Airedale terriers. I could find Silhouettes which is great, I just am not so good at cutting things out that have unusual edges. Such as concave or convex curves. I feel like a kindergartner with new very dull scissors! LOL. I do like to paper piece. A few weeks ago I contacted Janneen Van Niekerk- Quilt art Designs and Commissioned a paper piece pattern of my furry guy.
|In my daughters room. Silly boy!|
Here is my Boy Guinness in fabric! This was such a fun challenging piece for me to make....the eyes alone were mind boggling! it reminded me of iris folds...but with sewing. 21 sections, 12 different fabrics and a few OH NOS along the way! He is put together and I am very happy with how it turned out.
Janeen was great to work with all I had to do was send her a photo of Guinness and with in a few day she had the 16" pattern done! It took me longer than that to build up the courage to start this project!
|Mom....Please I have things to bark at!!|
