Go Rest High on That Mountain


This QuiltToon was inspired by photographs (see below) taken on a trip by Perrysburg, Ohio’s  St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church’s outreach to people who live in the Barnes Mountain area of Kentucky.  As told to me by Joan VanGunten, the cemetaries are focal points of the communities and are kept by families who have been burying ancestors there for more than 100 years.   The QuiltToon will be given to the outreach initiative to do with as they wish.

The piece is machine pieced and minimally quilted.  The embroidery and beading are hand done.  The sign is hand painted in acrylic. The QuiltToon is 18″ X 14″.  Completed Dec. 2016.

About QuiltToonist

I'm a news junkie and have opinions about everything! I consider myself a folk artist because I have no formal art training and use the sewing skills I learned many moons ago to accomplish the fiber art I seem to have to express.
