Sharon Malec began quilting in 1994, after having mastered home sewing and a variety of crafts, including creating and selling stuffed animals for about five years. This endearing canine, based on a photograph, is the sample quilt for one of the sixty-four animal patterns she has designed. The realistic dog with a soulful gaze is machine appliquéd and machine quilted using commercial cotton fabrics. Sharon quilts professionally and also teaches quilting. She has written and self-published three books: The Dog Lady Speaks, The Dog Lady Celebrates Christmas, and The Dog Lady Goes Wild! Sharon is married and has two grown children and three grandchildren.
