Materials/Techniques: Hand-embroidered cross-stitch on hand-dyed 35 count linen with machine sashing and borders using quilting cottons.
Artist Statement: This patriotic sampler reminded me of the days when my Mom was in a nursing home with Alzheimer's disease. They had frequent sing-along sessions that always ended with a rousing chorus of "God Bless America,” sometimes sung twice at the request of the residents. The little guy with the spy glass is my favorite part of this piece.
Dedication: This is dedicated to the caring staff at the Hebrew Home of Washington.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
