Silkies Framed

My friend Diane and her husband Al commissioned me to create a special art quilt for Al's office, featuring their beloved Silky Terriers. Muuuuuch later, the quilt was completed, and they took it to be framed by a wonderful frame artist in Cinco Ranch, who created a custom-made hardwood frame for it.
The quilt actually hangs free inside the double-glassed frame, so that the fabric does not touch the glass on either the front or the back.
Diane and Al invited me to see it before it is installed, since the back of the frame is glass, as well as the front, so that the back of the quilt can be seen too. Here's a pic of Diane and Al, with their beautifully framed art quilt.

  3. Thanks, Cathy & Judy! I should clarify that Diane and Al not only raise Silkies for themselves, but also show them professionally. Absolutely gorgeous dogs!
