2020 - Yale Guys
Jan Pitcairn
Lincolnville, ME   USA

Width: 9"   Length: 11"

Materials/Techniques: Adapted from a technique described in Quilting Arts Magazine by Mary Ann Tipple. A toner copy of a family photo was applied with gel medium to cotton duck cloth painted with acrylic paints, inks and glazes. Couched yarn and outline quilting finish the quilt.

Artist's Statement: This quilt was made in response to the Stay at Home Challenge led by Diane Petersmarck as an initiative to donate to Alzheimer’s research. I knew instantly that I wanted to try this technique using old photos to create a quilt with a nostalgic feel.

Dedication: For Aunt Fran.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $35.00 for the AAQI.
