6076 - A Virtuous Woman   ($60)

Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Machine appliqued using cotton fabric. I used fabric markers, jell pens, and cotton/poly thread and monofilament thread to applique and machine quilt.

Artist's Statement: The photograph I used as the basis for this quilt is dated Aug. 54. It is a picture of my great grandmother, Fannie Mae Carr, standing on the front porch of her house. I think the house, a former one room school house had just been remodeled. Grandma Carr helped raise my mother and her brothers and sisters after their mother died.

Dedication: To my great-grandmother Fannie Mae Carr, whose mind was sharp up until the day she died at the age of 92. I'm glad she never knew that her granddaughter, who was my mother, would later have Alzheimer's.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $60 for the AAQI.
