Stephen Colbert is a favorite of mine. “Colbear Raptor'” popped in my head because he’s so afraid of bears and loves the American eagles – or uses them to show his patriotism. Anyway, NOOOOOOOO! Shown at the June 5 & 6, 2010 Perrysburg Fiber Arts show in Perrysburg, Ohio. 22″ X 20″ — machine pieced, quilted and top-stitched. Hand appliqued, embroidered and painted. Completed in 2006. What amazed me was I was able to cut out Stephen’s body/black suit without a pattern! I let the scissors “follow” the picture in my brain.
