Width: 8"   Length: 9.25"

Materials/Techniques: The counties of Ohio, cut from different fabrics, were machine-appliquéd, so that the quilting follows the county lines. This quilt includes cotton fabrics kindly donated by Kathryn Laroche of Ohio and Tammy Smith of Indiana.

Artist Statement: I was feeling kindly toward Ohio, where I lived for a couple of delightful years, and wanted to see how an appliquéd patchwork would work out.
Laura Keyes Perry

Dedication: In honor of Annie Fern Wallick, a victim of Alzheimer's disease and grandmother of Amber House, who misses her very much.
