This QuiltToon™ came about because pranksters took my Obama yard sign before the 2008 November election, so “I fixed ’em!” I put one in the flower box on the second story of my house. (Just for full disclosure — pranksters took my husband’s McCain yard sign too.) I added campaign buttons and photos of the covers of Time and Newsweek magazines — so it became a celebratory quilt of President Obama’s victory. 17″ X 29″ — machine pieced, quilted and top-stitched. Hand applique and embroidery and machine applique. Completed spring 2009.
