7129 – Spring = Hope ($30.00)

Width: 9"   Length: 10.75"

Materials/Techniques: Silk fabrics, wool batting, silk-cotton blend backing, cotton and cotton-nylon blend yarns, appliqués to layered silk background.

Artist Statement: Since the challenge went out for dimensional quilts for the Quilt-a-month challenge, I decided I could knit a tree and crochet leaves and flowers and then applique them to the background which I quilted first. Thus I created a spring landscape.

Dedication: For my step-dad as we are in what was his favorite season. He loved to plant and grow his garden and we all loved to reap the benefit of his toil.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt raised $30.00 for the AAQI.
