I don’t remember who sent me the linen towel with the dogs on it. I stashed it away waiting for the right time to use it.
The right time came on Friday. I can’t say why it was the right time, only that it was. There’s so many ways to deal with these dog images, and it took me while to figure out how to work with them in a way that spoke to me.
So I searched my fabric, as I do, and when I came across the quilt pieces that I cut off of one of the quilt tops that I put together for Bishop Maginn, I knew I found what I was looking for.
Except for the first potholder I made, everyone of the 20 dog potholders is made with the fabric from this wonderful quilt top from the 1960’s
