Width: 9.5"   Length: 11.5"

Materials/Techniques: Rusted satin, cotton, tulle; fused appliqu�, tulle over the whole quilt.

Artist's Statement: The quiltart group had a call to make some quilts for Ami for the Houston show. I decided to participate. I wanted to use some of my rusted satin. I started with a piece and worked my design from there. I ended up with the broken heart and tears of hearts falling down the quilt. I appliqu�d with fusible. Since I didn't sew all the pieces down I decided to put tulle over the top to hold them. I quilted over the tulle. This quilt represents all the broken hearts and tears shed by those who have been touched by this horrible disease.
