The Dogs' House

Julie Koch's avatar Julie Koch

This piece is entirely hand appliqued and hand quilted. It started as just one quilt with as many dogs as I could get into it. When I came up with more room ideas it turned into three. They took approximately 15 months to finish. I find inspiration for all my pieces in the natural world around me. The dogs are all named and most are actual dogs of friends, family and neighbors that I have known throughout the years. My photo sits upon the fireplace with my childhood dog.
