Salem, OR USA
Width: 8.75" Length: 11.5"
Materials/Techniques: Designer cottons and batiks with appliqué, ink jet printing, Shiva oil sticks, metallic threads in free motion quilting, and golden beads.
Artist Statement: Edgar Allen Poe once wrote, "All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream." I wanted to create a deep, but still magical little quilt that brought the viewer into that dream...but allowed them to still see the golden nuggets of hope within.
Dedication: For my mother, who married my father 62 years ago, to share his life, his dreams, and his search for a golden future together. Alzheimer's might have changed those dreams, but it didn't completely destroy them. She dreams of him, and loves him, still.
