Width: 8.25" Length: 11"

Materials/Techniques: Hand pieced, fussy cut hexagons, machine stitched, decorative stitches and hand beaded.

Artist Statement: Last Fall, my brother suddenly passed away at age 60. I went into a deep sadness for two months and I didn't think I would ever quilt again. I came down with a virus and was ill in bed for several days. Watching daytime television was driving me to despair. I picked up a hand pieced hexagon project that I started 8 months before and working on hexagons to get away from the TV. Forcing myself to work on something outside of my comfort zone got my creative spirit back.
