Dogs are thrilled to learn that they are the good boy (or girl), and it never gets old. Cats, of course, have always known that they are the good boy/girl and will walk away acting unimpressed; but, really, even they appreciate the recognition.
And so, what could be better than a portrait of your most important family member to let them know that you, too, always know “who’s a good boy?” Even when you’re not there to let them know of their revered status.
I began making photo pillows of pets when my daughter went away to college and missed her cat. I enlarged a good photo, printed it on fabric, and made a soft pillow with a flat base so that her loyal companion could sit on her bed and greet her after class.
But sometimes there’s an empty space on the wall that needs a pop of color. Or other pets do not appreciate an inanimate interlope on their couch.
Enter the quilt collage portrait.
With a combination of a minimal palette accented with free-motion thread sketching, these portraits can convey your pet’s personality in a special way that once and for all can answer that question …
“Who’s a good boy/girl?” “Me!!!”
