Longview, WA USA
Width: 11.5" Length: 9"
Materials/Techniques: I drew the picture and I cut out pieces for an appliqué. I used a small dot of glue to hold them until they were sewn down. I used a little Inktense pencil to shade a few things and I used commercial fabrics. There is a big green leaf in velvet. I used some metallic thread. It is free motion quilted and thread signed.
Artist Statement: I love fall and big fields of pumpkins, the color and the shape. I love a basket of them in front of a grocery store, on a table or a front porch. I like them carved or not. They are sturdy and simple. Eating them is good too.
Dedication: To mother who had Alzheimer's and to Barbara who is a great care giver. Also to Ele' who can now start caring for herself.
