The Squirrels' Speech
art quilt by Barbara Barrick McKie

63 1/8" w. x 63 1/8" h.
We put up a squirrel feeder that was compacted corn based. I caught images of the various squirrels in our yard expressing their opinion of the new compacted corn. Then we up the old just dried corn, and they expressed their opinon of ther favorite variety of corn…the natural dried corn. I photographed the squirrels many time, then printed the best images to polyester fabric, heavily quilted the squirrels with free-motion home machine, and free-motion quilted the borders, the yellow representing the corn, machine pieced.
