Tuttle, OK   USA

Width: 11.5"   Length: 8.5"

Materials/Techniques: Totally fused using various sizes of a number of fabrics depicting a farm that has only patchwork blocks.

Artist's Statement: For some time I have been thinking about the quilt blocks that have names and shapes of various things. I decided to make a little quilt with 23 different blocks from some of the more common ones. When I research the blocks, I also found many more that could have been worked in if there had been enough space. There are many different designs for trees, barns, houses, fences, baskets and flowers and I picked the ones I like best. In some the meaning maybe be rather vague, such as the vegetable garden to the back of the house, which uses a form of the corn and beans block. A lot of blocks are made differently and some have many names. The names of the blocks used here are inscribed on the backing of the quilt. The Road to Oklahoma runs in front of their house, so they can leave the mountains and the lake country whenever they want.

Dedication: To the quilters of the past who developed so many blocks that we use all the time in our quilts.
