On Your Mark
art quilt by Barbara Barrick McKie

36" w. x 27.5" h.
One of the squirrels that I study daily in my backyard got into this pose that reminded me of a sprinter when he got in a pose for the start of a race. I photographed him, then printed the image to polyester fabric, thread painted using free-motion, machine appliqued with trapunto and machine quilted.
