14,147 - Happy Times ($75.00)

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.
