5919 - Metallic Threads II ($60.00)
Bridget Wideman
Seaside, OR    USA

Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Hand made and hand painted fabric/paper topped with glossy Mod Podge. Lots of metallic types of threads (all threads used are from Superior Threads; a total of 5 brands and way too many colors to count!) and Angelina fibers with a piece of tulle to hold it all in place. Heavy machine quilting. Commercial fabric for the backing and binding.

Artist's Statement: I had a piece of fabric/paper that I made last summer and could never think of what to do with it. I knew it would eventually be used for an AAQI quilt, but the right idea had to pop into my head. And it finally did. It turned out so much better than I hoped it would. I hope someone loves it enough to purchase it help raise funds to find a cure!

Dedication: to Cheryl Wideman, my husbands' aunt. She has been the family mediator and the one who makes sure her brother (my father-in-law) is well cared for as the Alzheimer's continues to take him farther away from us.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt raised $60 for the AAQI.
