Width: 11.5" Length: 8.75"
Materials/Techniques: I took 77 pictures of the birds at the Palm Desert Hotel. Some only have a leg in the picture but it shows it well. I drew a pencil drawing on white fabric and colored it with some new pencils that were given to me for Christmas. They are called Inktense and I love them. Also I used a little neo-color II crayons and water. There is a lot of free motion quilting and it is thread signed.
Artist Statement: I was introduced to the Marriott and its birds the first year I came to the desert. They were the first thing on the tour. That then became a tradition for us to show visitors. One can never get tired of looking at flamingoes.
Dedication: I dedicate these quilts to all caregivers, to my mother who had Alzheimer's and to my two friends Barbara and Ele' who are great caregivers.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $75.00 for the AAQI.
