The dog quilt is a second attempt at this theme. I did a larger one, about 18x28 a few years ago for my daughter, Leslie, who I believe has it hanging in her apartment. I attempt to illustrate a few lines from a poem by Mark Strand which I really love. In fact I love the poem so much I may yet make a third one for myself.
And I stood in the moonlight valley
Watching the great starfields
Flash and glower in the wished for
Reaches of heaven
That’s when I, the dog they call Spot,
Began to sing.
