Bayville, NJ USA
Width: 12" Length: 9"
Materials/Techniques: I used 100% cotton for the top and backing of the quilt. I painted portions of the background and the embroidery on the butterflies with Jacquard textile paints to change and add colors to them. I free-motion quilted this piece with Superior's Rainbows thread and Madeira's Poly-neon thread.
Artist Statement: Butterflies have so much variety...color, shape and form. Their flight, though fleeting, adds beauty wherever they go. My grandmother had Alzheimer's disease. This is my first quilt for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.
Dedication: In memory of my grandmother.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $80 for the AAQI.
