11,487 - Mama's Dresses, Papa's Ties ($40.00)

Width: 8.5" Length: 10.5"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: I started with partial blocks of a vintage mixed fabric quilt. I think it was a spool pattern with part of a man's tie; some cotton fabric and batting, invisible thread and silver thread. Some of the little blocks are a little lumpy because I did not want to take them apart to remove their batting.

Artist Statement: As an artist and someone who hates to throw away old things, I racked my brain to figure out a pleasing way to use the bits and pieces of a vintage quilt and some men's ties. Because almost every square had at least one piece that was shattered or shredded, what I came up with looks like the blocks are tumbling down from the top right hand corner.
