13,798 - In The Closet

Beverly Woodard
Tigard, OR USA

Width: 9" Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: The background of the bedroom was stitched then painted. I printed public clip art on fabric to depict his favorite toys, confetti technique in the closet with the monster, which my son drew.

Artist Statement: This quilt was created to illustrate a nightly bedtime ritual when my son was young after the story had been read, covers tucked in, and good night kisses given. Before we left the room, his last request was to check for monsters in the closet. I can still feel my brief terrifying panic as I turned the knob to open the closet door - OH MY GOD what if there IS a monster in the closet? Lucky for me I never had to deal with monsters in the closet.

This quilt has a Hanging Ring.

This quilt earned $115.47 for the AAQI.
