13,740 - Remembering Mother

Width: 12" Length: 8.75"

Materials/Techniques: This quilt is a combination of old and new. It incorporates her vintage handkerchief, a small part of an old pillow case trim as well as many vintage Mother of Pearl buttons. I've also used a piece of new ivory machine embroidery that has been hand embellished. Her cross stitch "Mother" bookmark added another personal touch to this piece. After placing the ribbon-work I hand beaded and embellished the entire quilt.

Artist Statement: This was a wonderful experiment dedicated to using little pieces of this and that found as I cleaned out my Mother-in-Law's linen closet after her Alzheimer's related passing in Sept. of 2012. It was a joy to make this quilt!

Dedication: Dedicated to Arline, we miss you so very much!

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
