Faithful Companion by Charlotte Freeman (California)

This stunning art quilt, resplendent with fall colors, was exhibited at the 2020 Road to California quilt show.  Designer and maker Charlotte Freeman says, "This quilt is an original design from a personal photo of my husband's favorite hunting companion.  I appropriately distorted the Hunters Star block for the background, and appliqued California Quail in the grass and fussy cut them for the square-in-square border blocks."

Charlotte Freeman has perfectly captured the dog's watchful pose, as seen in this closeup photo.  She explains that the dog's head was partially ink painted on a hand dyed fabric, as is the shading on her body.
