Gramps and Junior

This past Friday was the artists reception for "The Dog Days of Summer" show. We had a great turnout and it was a fun time for everyone! Pictured here is one of my little quilts that is in the show. I call it "Gramps and Junior". It features vintage fabrics and hand embroidery. The inspiration for "Gramps", (pictured on the left) came from an image of some silly looking dogs on an old 1930's Snap card. (Snap is an old kids card game.) Little "Junior" was inspired by an itty-bitty pen and ink cross-hatch illustration, no bigger then a half of an inch, that I found in an old 1880's paperback Mother Goose book that I have.
