265 - Colorado Cares
Kathryn Patterson
Golden, CO    USA

Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics, embroidery floss, glass beads, silk batting, cotton and variegated rayon threads; pieced and appliquéd.

Artist's Statement: The pinwheel squares were from a Primedia block exchange, made by staff members of McCall's Quilting, Quilter's Newsletter, Quiltmaker, and Sew News magazines. I used two of them to center Colorado Blocks, and filled in the background with four additional pinwheels. The appliquéd flower is a columbine, the state flower of Colorado.

Dedication: For Charlotte Wakley, a family friend who suffered with Alzheimer's disease. Her kindness and generosity of spirit live on in my memory.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $55.00 for Alzheimer's research.
