Dorothy in the Poppy Field Art Quilt

Dorothy and Toto slumber in a field of giant poppies in this art quilt inspired by a 1900 illustration by W.W. Denslow from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Chapter VIII of the story, titled The Deadly Poppy Field, recounts "...when there are many of these flowers together their odor is so powerful that anyone who breathes it falls asleep..." The sleeping Dorothy and Toto are created in fabric, paint and thread; an art quilt hommage to a favourite fairy tale.
