My Fishing Hole
art quilt by Barbara Barrick McKie

46" w. x 30" h.
On our trip to Alaska to Brooks Camp we delighted in seeing bearbears fishing for salmon by a waterfall. This bear seemed to be looking at us (or the fishermen nearby to tell us that it was his fishing hole. The bear is thread-painted and then treated with trapunto treatment. There are 2-4 layers of wool batting. Free-motion machine quilting and machine applique were also used.
