3472 - Bananas & Pears

Ute Park, NM   USA

Width: 8"   Length: 9.75"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics; cotton and Insul-Brite batting. Raw edge fused appliqué; both walking foot and free motion quilting.

Artist's Statement: I enjoyed experimenting with a puzzle quilt design, using contrasting fabrics where objects overlap. I chose bright colors and a fruit still-life design, for a fun kitchen decoration. Since the mini-quilt has a double layer of batting including an insulated layer, it can also be used as a trivet under hot casseroles.

Dedication: To Gail Schultz of Walsenburg, Colorado, who is an Alzheimer's patient. He is the father of my friend Annette Johnson, an educator and fellow quilter.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $45.00 for the AAQI.
