9735 - Unconquerable Summer

Jan Wade
Boulder, CO USA

Width: 11.5" Length: 8.25"

Designer: Cindy Cooksey, Another Day In Paradise pattern, used with written permission.

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics, mostly batiks, and I added a selvage strip to backing (latest trend in our area) which seemed apropos, "Almost Paradise."

Artist Statement: "Anyone is entitled to discover in the midst of their winter an unconquerable summer." As many baby boomers are now facing the winter of Alzheimer’s, the times we had in our prime included the surfing fad, beach movies, The Beach Boys, and the freedom and joy which a vintage VW bus suggests.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
