Volunteering at a church harvest supper, Julie Duschack was stuck by the youthful potential of this boy modeling his new sunglasses. She says, "You just knew he was destined for exciting challenges, well beyond the church kitchen. We should all remember how to dream big." Julie printed a photo of the boy on fabric, altered and enhanced the pieced background, and machine quilted the top. She notes you can see the galaxy reflected in his sunglasses. Julie enjoys the support of the Wisconsin fiber art group Women Who Run With Scissors, and loves art quilting because she doesn't have to follow anyone's instructions.
