15,110 - Tessellated Birds ($85.00)

Laura Keyes Perry

Width: 8.75" Length: 11"

Materials/Techniques: Appliquéd cotton birds with button eyes, and a little quilting around the edges. For materials used, I am grateful to Carl Enloe, Peggy Craig, Anna Lee Ladd, and Kitty Yates.

Artist Statement: I got interested in tessellated designs because of a "Doctor Who" episode! The adjective comes from "tesserae," the tiles used in making mosaics. In this quilt, all the birds have the same shape, and they fit into each other with no overlaps and no spaces.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $85 for the AAQI.
