A quilt based on the song The Times They are A Changin. The statement is about how communication has evolved greatly since the 50's. not necessarily for the better. The best conversations are in the kitchen with your mom!

Another experiment with printing on chiffon. Rosie was my paint horse. A chubby mare with a personality, if she got tired of you she would roll her shoulder and tip you off. She never pulled it on me but I watched her do it to her new owners a couple of times.

My appaloosa horse High Hand Joe. Great photo of him, he really taught me how to show a horse so I have a soft spot for him in my heart. I had this printed on chiffon and added the commercial fabrics underneath. Lots of stitching and it is a stunner. People ask, how did you do that?
This is a photo I took in the mid seventies, I always liked the yin and yang of the blurred rider and the stationary barrel. The effect of the shattered image and concentric stitching adds to the effect.
