Artist Statement: This quilt was designed and made in remembrance of my mother-in-law, Erma Rose Arcadi. Each time Erma was a passenger in my car, she would look out the window and what she saw amazed her, especially the trees. Her eyes would get big, her mouth would form a big O, and she would say "look at all the trees, there's so many!” I see and hear her in every car trip.
Dedication: Dedicated to Erma Rose Arcadi.
