Remnants of a Family Farm

A few years ago, I took a photo of an old abandoned farm house and decided this week to make a QuiltToon of that subject.   As an older adult who was a child of farm country Kansas, I admit I probably have a romanticized view of the small family farm.  But, on the other hand, we know that small farms contribute mightily to our economy, healthy food supply and, in general, to American’s proud view of our current and historical collective selves.  This QuiltToon is made to honor all small farmers in existence today and throughout our history.

QuiltToon is 14″ X 13″.  Machine pieced and top-stitched.  Hand and machine appliqued and embroidered.  Completed Feb. 2011.
