3333 - Rusted Leaves

3333 - Rusted Leaves
Jenny Williams
Lexington, NC   USA

Width: 8.5"   Length: 11.75"

Materials/Techniques: Leaves scanned & printed on rusted cotton background (supplied by Lois Jarvis for the Stay At Home Challenge); free motion thread painting with copper metallic thread, free motion machine quilting.

Artist's Statement: I found these leaves on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Blowing Rock, NC. When I saw Lois' fabric I thought they would be perfect together. Fall leaves scatter with the wind, just as fragile as a mind trapped and scattered by Alzheimer's disease.
Jenny Williams

Dedication: To my father, Floyd B. Woodburn, Jr., who suffered and succumbed to Alzheimer's.

This quilt is displayed with a traditional sleeve.
