Artist Statement: This quilt represents my love of peonies. When I was growing up in the Midwest, their blooms announced the arrival of spring and the advent of summer. Living in California, I miss the anticipation of the blooming of peonies. When I saw this fabric I knew I must buy it and share my love of peonies in a quilt. I also hope that the quilt provides a lift to the viewer, similar to what I experienced when I was a child.
Dedication: To Mom, who produced beautiful bouquets of peonies throughout her life.
