Alvin, TX   USA

Width: 8.5"   Length: 8.25"

Materials/Techniques: Hand dyed and commercial fabric, Angelina, threads.

Artist's Statement: I used water-soluble stabilizer and layered my thread ends that I have been saving, and then heavily stitched over all the threads. After washing out the stabilizer, I cut this thread-fabric into shapes and birthed my star. I laid Angelina on my background, stitched my star to the background, and quilted the whole thing.

Dedication: For my three co-workers who are dealing with parents at different stages of Alzheimer's, something I hope my children never have to deal with.

This quilt is displayed with a hanging ring.

This quilt earned $40.00 for the AAQI.
