14,929 - Jennie's Roses ($46.19)

Width: 11.5" Length: 8.5"

Materials/Techniques: Fabric rose petals and leaves, cotton fabrics and batting, Timtex and netting with multiple layers of free motion and decorative stitching.

Artist Statement: Ami Simms gifted me with the fabric flowers from her daughter, Jennifer Simms-Coffey's bridal shower. I promised to use them in a small format art quilt for donation to AAQI in return. By taking apart the flowers and re-creating them into a new format, I remembered the past, but envisioned the future.

Dedication: For Jennie Simms-Coffey, and the love she had for her own dear Nannie, Ami's mother, Beebe Moss, the inspiration for AAQI. And for the love and remembrance of all those we love, have loved, and will forever love.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $46.19 for the AAQI.
