Materials/Techniques: The embroidered piece depicting Mary with Jesus in the manger is on a loosely woven muslin piece. It is bound and backed with a pastel print and it is hand quilted by me.
Artist Statement: My deceased mother embroidered this piece in the 1970's or 80's. My stepfather gave it to me upon her death in 1996. It has been lying on a shelf in my sewing room closet since then. A close friend died of Alzheimer's in the early 2000's and when I considered donating a quilt in her honor, this piece came to mind.
Dedication: To Betty Gerber Mayer.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $45.88 for the AAQI.
