This is an Artist Trading Card made for a “challenge” in the Quilting Arts Magazine. The challenge was called “What’s in Your Heart?” As I grow older, memories of my childhood in Kansas become even more precious to me. I can remember walking barefoot in the hot Kansas sandhills near Hutchinson. (We never wore shoes in the summer.) A lot of time was spent outdoors, by ourselves, exploring whatever.
This QuiltToon™ is 2.5″ X 3.5.” I took a photograph of a corn field in northwest Ohio and painted it with acrylics, embelished it with beads and buttons and free motion machine top-stitching.
Completed Aug. 3, 2012.
