Tonya Littmann perfectly captures the imploring look of her golden retriever, Rusty, who is obsessed with tennis balls and wants to play.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Quilt That's On Vacation
"My Traveling Journey" by Brian Haggard

My Traveling Journey is a quilt made of all of Brian's vacations. Brian thinks a lot of vacation quilts can get a little "garish and bright", so he wanted something different for his and went with a sepia-tone color palette. Displaying locations such as Paris, Germany, Chambord Castle, Italy, and many of the other places that he's visited, the centerpieces actually use antique postcards from the 1800s to represent places that Brian had not traveled to yet when the quilt was made. He is proud to say that he has now visited all of the destinations featured on the quilt.

Learn from Brian, and the other Handwork Masters, in How to Do Handwork | Handwork Masterclass Part 1 - From Piecing to Quilting.
