Width: 10.75" Length: 8.5"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: The quilt is made from cotton fabric with machine appliqué and a light touch of thread painting.

Artist Statement: I made this quilt because I wanted to capture how it feels to watch someone we love slipping away from us. Many thanks to Dan Sorensen for giving me permission to use his original photograph "Wandering Among the Tulips" and allowing me to alter it by watermarking it for the background of this quit. Dan's other wonderful photos can be viewed on Flickr. The flower in the foreground is from public domain clip art.
