Materials/Techniques: This is an appliquéd scene with elephants decorated with a piece of Kente cloth. One of Ghana's best-known products is Kente cloth, a cloth woven of silk and cotton. A colleague of mine who travelled there on business in the early 1990’s purchased this piece in Ghana. I have had it ever since and thought it would add interest to these little quilts.

Artist Statement: I made this quilt to raise funds for Alzheimer’s research and to show my support for the AAQI.
