Judy Martin, Knockout Blocks and Sample Quilts, used with written permission.
Materials/Techniques: Made from batiks; the center block is from Judy Martin's book Knockout Blocks and Sampler Quilts. The header and footer are single Kansas Dugout blocks. It is quilted with clear thread.
Artist Statement: When I was a child, we used to spend time most summers in Kansas. This was before air conditioners but my aunt didn't have electricity on the farm anyway. The summers were hot and more humid than the even hotter weather in Oklahoma. It was a different kind of heat for us. The changing colors give the quilt the appearance of the shimmering heat waves.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $80.00 for the AAQI.
