Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabric, machine quilted with appliquéd motifs (stem, leaves, grass) using fusible fabric, and polyester petals top-stitched; center made with texture magic, appliquéd with topstitch.
Artist Statement: I enjoyed making this quilt using sunny colors and a friendly motif which reminded me of my mother-in-law.
Dedication: To my wonderful mother-in-law, Mary; she was a very upbeat person throughout her life even though she had many challenges. Her sweet nature became more pronounced as Alzheimer’s progressed. The aide would come into her room in the morning to wake her saying, “Mary, Mary quite contrary” and Mary would response “How does your garden grow.” We miss her and still love her deeply.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
