Artist Statement: This little art quilt was inspired by a memory of my grandmother. She loved fans and always carried one with her to church because they had no air conditioning. One Christmas, we grandchildren made her a fan out of a piece of cardboard and a popsicle stick. We glued on pictures that we had cut from old magazines. We didn't have any extra wrapping paper so we just stuck it in the top of her stocking. She was very proud of her church fan. Thirty years later she couldn't remember what she had for breakfast but she remembered her church fan.
