Width: 11"   Length: 9"

Designer: Greg Middents, pen and ink drawing, used with permission.

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabric, thread, and batting, piped binding; digital photographs of the original artwork were compiled into one piece, then printed onto fabric and tightly echo quilted.

Artist's Statement: This quilt is based on a drawing my son created during a difficult time in his life. When I first saw the large piece of paper covered with figures dancing, twirling, and leaping, I knew he would be okay. If he could make something as joyful as that, things would get better for him, and they did shortly after. I offer this quilt for hope.

Dedication: For the people who are there for us when we need them.
