This is one of my first art quilts done spring, 2009. I started with several photos of our longhorns, placed background fabric on a backing, stitched through a black and white photo of the longhorn, tore off the photo, then started placing fabric. I then thread sketched the details. Finally, I added batting and a backing and machine quilted, then put on a binding. After looking at it for some time, I added some shadows with markers. It is 8.5x11.
