Vernon Hills, IL   USA

Width: 9"   Length: 9.5"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton, silk leaves; machine appliquéd, machine quilted.

Artist's Statement: As a child I spent many happy hours playing in the leaves with my sister and cousins. Those were simpler days when children could have fun with nothing more than a pile of leaves and a rake. We burned the leaves and enjoyed the wonderful smell with no worries about air pollution. I really miss those days, and my mother.

Dedication: To my mother, Jessie Mae Plapp.
