Gearhart, OR    USA

Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Various photo images on commercial cotton fabric; embellished with Trapunto, ribbons, metallic fabric paints, Angelina and misc. fibers, tulle and heavy machine quilting using various Superior threads. The top is then sandwiched using cotton batting and a commercial cotton fabric backing. Additional machine quilting was added to hold the layers together. Binding is traditional using commercial cotton fabric and fast-finish triangles are attached for hanging.

Artist's Statement: This is my 5th donation to the AAQI and I hope to make many more. I enjoy learning new quilting related techniques, and a small size such as 9"x12" is perfect for learning. It's been my experience that my "first" of anything is my best, so my first of a new experiment of a technique has been and will continue to be donated to the AAQI. The AAQI is important to me because Alzheimers has personally touched the life of my family; my father-in-law, Dale Wideman, continues to press on even though the disease has taken away the Dale we all once knew and loved.

Dedication: To my husband, Brian Wideman, because he is a constant encourager to me as I struggle with my own health problems and chronic pain. I never knew what unconditional love was before we married, and after nearly 27 years of ups and lots of downs, he still loves, encourages, comforts and cheers me on. He's the best husband anyone could ever hope for, and I wish I had enough space to express just how incredibly thankful I am.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.
