Width: 8"   Length: 10"

Materials/Techniques: My evolving interpretation of the “thready” technique shown by Tonya R. on her blog. Made with a wide variety of cotton quilting fabric scraps (all in greens) hand-basted onto foundation fabric. I then used lots (!!) of shades of green cotton embroidery flosses and a basic running stitch for the random (and deliberately uneven) hand-quilting.

Artist's Statement: The first is this PQ series was Mindful Moodling (#1064). Next came Zerrissenheit... (#1189) and now (tad da) comes: Mindful Moodling, II (Kudzu, Jr.)

My middle nephew’s high school graduation quilt was done all in greens (none of them bashful) and it was named Kudzu. Since several bits and pieces from that project found their way into this PQ, the name Kudzu, Jr. just fit. All of the hand stitching on Kudzu, Jr. has been done during my lunch hours – fat-free and soul-centering at the same time!

Sadly, Alzheimer’s is much like kudzu - unremitting, persistent, relentless....
