Width: 8.75" Length: 8.75"

Materials/Techniques: Commercial cottons, machine piecing and quilting, 3-D flying geese and painted beads for embellishment.

Artist Statement: I am the oldest of five children. Who would ever have guessed that it would take all five of us to physically care for our mother and our father? We all pitch in, we all take turns and we all have had to live with them in our childhood home on an island in Alaska as we do absolutely every bit of mom's daily care. We just have to always remember that 'we are all in this together' and we just keep on doing, and being the best, and the strongest, and the most, that any of us can do...or be... because it is very, very, very hard.
