Backyard Entertainers
art quilt by Barbara Barrick McKie

49" w. x 48.25" h.
Our corn feeder in our back yard is the source of much entertainment in the fall and winter. In 2011, for the first time red squirrels joined the grey squirrels, and they proved to be quicker and funnier in their positions on the tree and feeder and in confrontations with other squirrels. I culled my hundreds of photos to select the images on this quilt. I then edited the images and printed them on cotton sateen. 2 layers of wool batting, black cotton backing and hand dyed cotton border fabric with free-motion quilting complete the quilt.
