As Janet says: WOWZA!

See a list of all the winners here:

Jesse the collie by Roseanne Smith

We photographed our dogs, made line drawings from
the photos and appliqued them. The rules were:
No black, no white and use the Jane Sassaman dot for background.

It took awhile.....

Wendy Turnbull's Zoe and Max on the left, 
Janet Perkins's Boston Bull on the right.
The dogs are NOT to scale.

Minnie the mini-poodle by Georgann Eglinski

Roseanne set our blocks together, quilted it and entered it in the AQS show.

Sumo the large by Georgann Eglinski
Not everyone made her own dog.

Note Roseanne quilted dog names into each block.
It says Sumo above her ear on the left.
