9624 - Lucy's Last Tea Party  ($60.05)

Width: 8.75" Length: 11.5"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: I used two different shades of mottled purple cotton fabric and then I hand-appliquéd a lace teapot and two cups on the front. I used DMC pearle cotton thread to simulate the tea being poured into Lucy's cut. This is shadow quilted with two hearts. Can you find them?

Artist Statement: I had given my friend Lucy a lace doily with teapots and teacups on it about three years ago. She passed away two years ago, not from Alzheimer's, but from heart problems. This quilt was created with deep heart-felt emotions.
