8544 – The Eyes of Texas   ($60.05)

Width: 10.75"   Length: 8.75"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics machine-appliquéd and quilted. The eyes are glass mirrors and should be kept away from children and others who might be tempted to remove them. I want to thank two women who gave me fabric I used in this quilt -- Elizabeth Minnis and Sylvia Rosenshine.

Artist Statement: That little song that says "The eyes of Texas are upon you" kept running through my head. I started wondering idly whether the eyes of Texas would be brown, blue, hazel, green, or what ... and finally decided that they have many different colors, depending upon who is looking.
Laura Keyes Perry

Dedication: In honor of Texans who are fighting the good fight against Alzheimer's.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $60.05 for the AAQI.
