Width: 7.5"   Length: 7.5"

Materials/Techniques: Satin brocade; machine appliqué and machine quilting.

Artist's Statement: The members of the Butterfly Sisterhood are not sisters by birth, nor by union or marriage or background or life experiences. They are, instead, bound by the commonality of a disease that alternately deprives them of their past and their present, and they are held together by their commitment to face the unknown as one. They are proud, strong, honest women who realize that their future will not be as they planned but that their present can be filled with joy, love, and blessing, if only for a fleeting moment. The world knows them as Gladys, Cora, Rachel, and Elizabeth. I call them Strength, Courage, Hope, and Faith.
