“K-9 Search & Rescue”
The first image here is a result of when I was invited to submit a piece for the “A Better World – heroes working for the greater good” exhibition. I chose K-9 Search & Rescue as my “heroes,” as we have one search group headquartered very close to where we live. Using the vintage National Park Posters as my inspiration and incorporating our nearby Mount Pilchuck in the background, I set out to honor the important work of these K-9 units.
We were given the dimensions of 30” X 50” as the required size. My quilt contains hand-dyed fabrics and is machine quilted.
It was selected for the exhibition and traveled for a couple of years and was also included in an article of “Quilting Arts” magazine.
