Brant, AB Canada
Width: 9" Length: 11"
Materials/Techniques: Central panel is a vintage piece cross-stitched with cotton thread on even weave linen. The crazy patch border is pieced with batik quilting cottons and the backing is also batik quilting cotton.
Artist Statement: I very much enjoy trying different techniques with the little art quilts for AAQI. I bought this cross-stitch already completed in Value Village and know nothing about the original maker other than he/she did very fine work. I wanted to make a quilt this time that would be suitable for display in a nursery or for gifting to a new family. For this purpose I surrounded the adorable cross stitch bears and verse with bright pastel pieces of fabric in a crazy quilt border.
Dedication: I would like to dedicate this quilt to my dear Aunt Olive, who continues her battle with Alzheimer's Disease.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $87.16 for the AAQI.
