Today most of my prairie quilts depict something of the land around my home. I have taken pictures for years of the farmland, wooded areas and bits of remaining prairie lands nearby. The weathered barns, fences, windmills and chicken coops often become a focal point in one of my quilts. With silk ribbon I can then add spiders, bugs and other details that would be impossible to create with fabric alone.
I am currently making "portraits" of individual fence posts, each with its own personality.
