Parma, ID USA
Width: 8" Length: 11"
Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics with polyester batting, lightly hand quilted around the design on the front, and a similar quilting pattern on the back in a mottled cotton fabric.
Artist Statement: This little quilt is another of my original designs done almost totally in hand embroidery. I have incorporated appliqué in the hat and the patches on his pants. Does he make you wish you too could see what he is seeing inside that little bird house? You will need to turn it over to get the rest of the picture however. A little hint - He IS seeing birds, but in a whole new way. I didn't plan for this to happen, but I am glad it did.
Dedication: To all who still have the ability to see things that aren't really there. It is called creativity. I just hope those who cannot remember any longer have the ability to still "see" things that can make them happy.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $46.19 for the AAQI.
