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.
Dedication: To my brother, Dee Meadows. When I think of you, I smile, remembering how you always made me laugh.
