15,572 - Blooming in Spring

Lena Frost
Norman, OK USA

Width: 9" Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: 100% cotton, hand appliquéd and machine quilted.

Artist Statement: I spent hours with my dear friend, Agnes McBride, making hand appliquéd blocks for our Baltimore Album quilts. I moved before mine was finished (12 years ago) and have not taken a stitch on it since--partly because of the poignant memories and having learned that as Alzheimer’s robbed Agnes of her beautiful stitches, it also robbed her of the memory that she had ever even made quilts. I hope that this little quilt will get me back on track to finish my large quilt as a form of closure after her death this spring.

Dedication: To the memory of my dear friend Agnes McBride and to the memories of the many stitches we shared over 10 years in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
