5715 - Ocean Memories
Janet Kraus
Ambler, PA    USA

Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: All cotton quilting fabrics, warm and natural batting. Made from “bonus” half square triangles from a scrappy quilt.

Artist's Statement: My mother loved the beach and the color orange, and not seeing anything go to waste. Her wishes were that we scatter her ashes at sea. This quilt is my way of paying tribute to her – the sun shining over the ocean, the orange borders and back, and all materials from things on hand.

Dedication: To my dear mother, Irene Kraus, who suffered from Alzheimer’s for 10 years, and whose values live on in me and my memories.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $44.59 for the AAQI.
