Materials/Techniques: This little quilt was constructed from cotton fabrics. The appliquéd pieces were fused to the background fabric and outlined by machine with the button hole stitch. The lettering was added with fabric inks. Buttons were added as eyes and embellishment to the shirt. The wording and shirt and tie were added to the original pattern.
Artist Statement: Sometimes life requires thinking like a big dog! This little bit of wisdom I have gleaned from our Chihuahua. When he struts confidently and boldly past a big dog many times his size, he doesn't seem to realize he's a little dog. Like him, some bigger than life situations must be faced with the same determination and courage.
Dedication: To all who have faced the challenge of caring for an Alzheimer’s patient, you have my respect and admiration.
