2144 - Cutie
Catherine Solorzano, Age 5
Provo, UT   USA

Width: 6"   Length: 4"

Materials/Techniques: Fabric appliqué, rayon stitching.

Artist's Statement: This is the fifth of a series of six fabric postcards that my family made for our family night last week. I provided a stack of fabrics to choose from for the background and pre-made shapes of fabric with fusible web already attached. The kids arranged their shapes (and cut some too), I ironed them, and the older two (5 and 4) did all the sewing themselves! Catherine (5) made this one and she says that it is a face, which is why she named it cutie. She particularly likes the stitching on the nose (the gnome on blue).

Dedication: My sister, Naomi Adams, has a quilt in the Forgetting Piece by Piece exhibit. She inspired us to donate a little of our time to support this great cause. Everyone has known someone who has or had Alzheimer's and it is always devastating.

This quilt has a plain back.

This quilt earned $30 for the AAQI.
