In 2004, while sitting in a bank in Hutchinson, Kansas, I noticed the large, old scale made by Toledo Scales. With Toledo, Ohio being my current home, this had some interest for me. The hook on the side of the scale is presumably for a person’s coat; but being a constant dieter I thought that I would have to take off all my clothes so as not to add any unwanted ounces! A QuiltToon™ was born…Someone asked me why I made the hair gray…I don’t know…because I still don’t have gray hair (and no I don’t color my hair). But I would be much taller too — so it’s not necessarily me, is it? 19″ X 23″ — machine pieced and top-stitched. Hand appliqued and embroidered. Completed 2005.
