14,773 - Lost Hunter

Kathy Garzella
Porter, IN USA

Width: 9" Length: 9.75"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics, machine pieced and quilted.

Artist Statement: This dog was my model to paint but I could not get the mouth and eyes right so I ended up doing appliqué.

Dedication: This dog's eyes reminded me of my mother searching with her eyes in a blank sort of way. Sea gulls are not the hunt for this particular breed. Geese and duck are, but the idea represented is the confusion of the hunter as though he were praying.

This quilt has a Split Sleeve.

This quilt earned $30 for the AAQI.
