Width: 8.5" Length: 10.5"

Materials/Techniques: I used cotton fabrics and batting, polyester and cotton threads, and one sequin. The quilt is machine appliquéd and machine quilted.

Artist Statement: Like a bowl of cherries, the hummingbird and thistles represent the wonders and pain of life. My mother loved hummingbirds and cherished a small painting that her father made of one. My quilt attempts to capture the spirit of that painting.
