I haven't yet started looking at material yet, but just the "thinking about it what to do" part WAS a lot of fun!

Here's what I did: I took out pictures I'd had printed out of my two Havs and started looking at them with the quilt blocks in mind. I was looking for a good image of either Sammy or Ricky, in action or just posing. I placed my photo up on my glass patio door (it could be any window) during the day and with a sheet of white paper over it, I gently traced the form of my Havanese. You don't want to leave an imprint of your pencil on the photo.

I then played around with it a bit and scanned my sketches. I used Word to insert the saved drawings and enlarged them, and mirror-imaged some of them until I got to where I liked things. Printed those out in several sizes.

I used two 8 1/2 "x11 papers to create 10"x10" (or 11x11) block and started placing the cut out images I'd just printed here and there to come up with scenes I like. Here's an example.....

I am not using this image. I kind of divided the dog up so that I could picture using diff. patterns on the same applique. I got inspiration from your amazing Havs, Julie, both from the Ricky/Tori and Delilah/Samson blocks you made.

Now if only I didn't have such a crappy sewing machine and have to do the small appliques by hand!

Marj, I love it. I just got my first inspiration today. Maybe I'll try to sketch something over the weekend.

Those are great hav drawings! I think I have a few of those printed up from last year's quilt. Google Images has hundreds if you have the patience to go through them

Although..I agree on drawing/sketching. You can come up many ideas while drawing, creativity does flow! The block I'm making now wasn't even a thought til' I touched a pencil to paper and saw the fabric I had to work with.

Funny, because the fabric I have to use..I just could not work it into MY idea, so I let the fabric tell ME what to make, lol...

I'm a horrible at drawing, btw. lol So I won't be scanning any of those images

Marj asked me to post this here. Here's the picture of Tess I used as my idea for this year's quilt block. I don't have any talent for drawing I just took it in small sections.
