Artist's Statement: The idea for this mini quilt came to me as I tried to think of a way to honor my dad and his life’s profession that supported my mother and three sisters. Before Alzheimer’s disease claimed him, he was a furrier. I know animal fur for garments is taboo now, but in his day, my dad took great pride in his work for many a movie star and was well known and respected throughout the fur industry from New York to California. He had class!

Dedication: For my dad, Joseph.
