Ringgold, GA USA
Width: 11.5" Length: 8.75"
Materials/Techniques: 100% cotton fabric, felt batting, 100% cotton thread.
Artist Statement: The gorgeous purple, teal and blue batik fabric reminded me of the Northern Lights so I decided to create a landscape scene with trees and an appliquéd house. To emphasize the colors in the batik, I used a solid black for the foreground features. The quilting consists of wavy lines running throughout the sky to add a sense of movement.
Dedication: I made this quilt in loving memory of both my great-grandmother ("Mammaw") and my grandmother ("Granny"), both of whom developed Alzheimer’s in their later years. I treasure the memories of both of them, especially the memories of them patiently teaching me how to sew and quilt.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $45 for the AAQI.
