Indianapolis, IN USA
Width: 8.25" Length: 10.25"
Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabric background, interfacing, flannel batting, painted canvas pieces, fabric glue, paint pens. Cotton /poly and invisible thread were used with rough edge appliqué and machine quilting.
Artist Statement: Every so often at auction I buy damaged paintings so that I can re-use the canvas. This painting had a lot of gray and black and was fairly small but by careful cutting and piecing I was able to get three little quilts from it. It was a bargain and I had a lot of fun figuring out how to use it. I titled this one Goodbye Mother because no matter how old you are, when you say goodbye to your mother you are always a child.
Dedication: To all the mothers.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $50.00 for the AAQI.
