Bartlett, TN USA
Width: 8.5" Length: 11.5"
Materials/Techniques: Machine quilted using Sulky and Star threads, embellished with a variety of buttons.
Artist Statement: This PQ includes six buttons bearing the traditional yin-yang design. The outer circle represents "everything," while the black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of two energies, called "yin" (black) and "yang" (white), which cause everything to happen. They are not completely black or white, just as things in life are not completely black or white, and they cannot exist without each other. I WISH WE COULD EXIST WITHOUT ALZHEIMER'S!!
Dedication: In honor and memory of my mother, Lura Ash Walton (1916-2005). Her favorite color was blue.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $50 for the AAQI.
