Materials/Techniques: Cottons, blends; foundation/paper pieced.

Artist Statement: Psychedelic Shadows II -- AKA: What you do when you can’t find the right color fabric for a shadow. Just for fun and to challenge myself, I drew foundation pieced patterns for classic blocks casting a shadow. I did patterns for a shadowed ‘King’s Crown’; ‘Shoo Fly’; and ‘Turnstile’.

Dedication: To Martha Wolfersberger (MT), a precise quilt maker who has earned almost $5,000 for research and she didn’t start making AAQI quilts until 2009. Her mastery of working in miniature is amazing. She could reduce a shadowed Shoo Fly to two inches in size and produce a near-perfect block.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $45 for the AAQI.
