I finally finished this QuiltToon™. I must have started it at least five years ago. I had made the border, the cat and the big flower. I don’t know why I didn’t finish it at the time. But I’m glad I got it done now. Very few times do a I start one that I do not finish it. It shows how my friend Jeannie and I, at about age 13, showed heifers – mine a Jersey (looks more like a deer than a cow!) and her’s a Holstein — at the Reno County Kansas Fair — we both won red ribbons. I included the 4-H Pledge on the lower right — and I’m happy to report that I could recite it correctly even before I found it online! Making this brought about a lot of happy memories. (And Jeannie and I were both much cuter than I could embroider!!)
28″ X 23″. Machine pieced and top-stitched. Machine and hand embroidered. Hand appliqued. Small amount of fusible webbing and fabric paint.
