Artist Statement: This quilt was inspired by Aesop's fable about the Sun and the North Wind in which they compete to get a traveler to remove his cloak. The North Wind blows and blows, but the traveler only clutches his cloak tighter. The Sun shines gently and the traveler removes his cloak. The moral: persuasion is better than force.

Dedication: This quilt is dedicated to my Grandfather who has always been a bright and shining force in my life and who now suffers from Alzheimer's.

This quilt has a Hanging Ring.
