6706 - "Untitled"   ($40)

Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton black and white fabric scraps on a red cotton background, machine pieced and free-motion quilted.

Artist Statement: The first Thursday of the month I have the pleasure of attending my local quilt guild meetings. Mrs. P knows that I quilt for the AAQI and always presents me with a bag of scraps to use for my little projects. This particular week was no exception. Once I arrived home to find a quiet house and a happy family, I sat down and explored Mrs. Pís scrap bag. The most beautiful black and white fabrics all cut in wedges fell onto my table. With them, I instantly pieced a fan type piece. It was lovely, but too large for the USPS Priority envelope. So, in a moment of inspiration directly from above, I took the rotary cutter and began to slice. "Untitled" is the result of this seemingly violent act that led directly to the creation of this beautiful little work.
