“Teva” flatcoated retriever

This quilt was inspired by Liz Saunders’ stunning photo. The quilt’s size is 35″ x 45″ (89cm x 114cm) and it’s made of 163 pieces of fabric. Here’s some detail pictures, you can click to enlarge them.

This shot of the reverse side of the quilt shows the quilting much better.

The dog is very heavily quilted with brown metallic thread. It took about 500 meters (1600 feet) of thread to make this quilt…

Here are a couple of detail shots of the quilting. The first picture shows mainly the dog’s head and the bird’s chest. The other picture shows the wings of the mallard.

I had my doubts whether to quilt the dog itself but now I’m so happy that I took the chance and tried.

And we had an audience while photographing this quilt…

“Hey, who’s that dude”? wonders Topi.
