Tuttle, OK USA
Width: 8.75" Length: 8.75"
Materials/Techniques: Made from cotton fabrics pieced without using foundations on a 3/8” grid. I then quilted with clear thread and added a narrow binding to finish.
Artist Statement: "54¬° 40' or Fight!" was the 1844 campaign slogan of James Polk, and referred to the control of the border at 54¬° 40' The familiar design of a block named after his slogan combined with snowball blocks always makes a pleasing quilt. I made the center of the snowball block repeat the scrappy look by adding more colorful blocks on the corners of a dark blue block, then I decided it needed a border to quit the quilt. This is the result.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $75.00 for the AAQI.
