6018 - Through the Clouds ($75)

Width: 7.75"   Length: 7.75"

Materials/Techniques: Made from a variety of printed fabrics with a technique inspired by Maggie Ball's Bargello Quilts with a Twist article in American Quilter. The blocks were reduced in size considerably and needed a different ratio of patch widths; then 16 blocks were maneuvered into this design.

Artist's Statement: When I was quite young I decided that blue and green didn't go together and refused to wear clothes with that color combination. My thinking changed when a grade school art teacher whom I really liked said that green and blue were the most natural color scheme, since it was all around us, in the sky and the plants on earth. The green patches in this quilt reminded me of the fields showing through the clouds when looking out at the sky from an airplane window.

Dedication: To the teachers who were often my idols and formed so many of my ideas. Not many of them still are alive, but there are plenty of good teachers who have taken their places and continue to help young people with the many things they need to learn as they grow up.
