Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: cotton fabrics, yellow and black threads, acrylic paints, watersoluble wax pastels, batting, stabilizer, stencils, stamp.

This is an original painting onto cotton fabric.

The quilt was thread sketched with black thread and the background was free motion stitched with the following text:

When our history
blurs, help
Remember Us.
Sing me our song,
and I will sing
with you.

Artist's Statement: Imagine losing all your history. No memories of your relationships. No memories of your family members. No memories of birthday cakes, the sound of family on Christmas morning, or the smell of freshly baked cinnamon bread in the kitchen.

No memories of your son's first date.
No memories of your daughter's wedding day.
No memories of your grandchild's first step.
No memories of your high school art teacher.

But sometimes, during those rare few seconds,
you hear that song, and you remember,
you remember for those precious few seconds,
that magical moment,
and your family's hearts dance,
for a lifetime.

Fannie Narte

Dedication: For those who feel caged.
