Dad and Jack

This is a fabric portrait I made for my dad's 85th birthday.  It's from a photo of him when he was 9 years old, posing with his dog, Jack.  I've always loved the photo and thought it would make a wonderful quilt art gift for his birthday.  It is all done in fabric and thread, not a painted portrait.  (I did use dots of white paint in the eyes.) The original photo was black and white but I thought sepia tones would give an aged look and be interesting.

  1. This is wonderful and an inspiration to me. I have been working on projects of my dad as an adult but now I’m thinking -old photos of him would be great! Thanks for sharing.
