LEAPING AT THE SQUIRREL

Fibert Artist:  Lori Taylor
Artist:  Patty Eisenbraun


Quilted Block

Lori Taylor's inspiration for this block was:  When our Quilting Bee decided to do the Leap Y'Aire theme for 2016, I immediately thought of one of my Airedales favorite leaping activities.  That activity can be described in one word:  SQUIRRELS!  Many times, I have seen Scarlett or Claire jumping up (and barking) at a furry grey squirrel up in the big mulberry tree in our backyard. So for my 2016 quilt block, I asked my artist, Patty Eisenbraun, to depict an Airedale leaping up at a squirrel sitting on a tree branch looking down at her.  When there is a squirrel in the tree, even their favorite big blue ball sits idly by at the base of the tree.
