Ann Arbor, MI USA
Width: 15" Length: 15"
Materials/Techniques: 100% cotton fabric and thread, wool batting, machine quilted.
Artist Statement: My small quilt depicts the words from the "Bell Bottom Blues" by Eric Clapton. "I don't want to fade away - give me one more day - please - in your heart I want to stay". I used soft blue fabric and shades of blue thread starting darker and fading away to lighter threads, from top left to bottom right. I also designed an original feather motif to look like a heart. I thought this is what having Alzheimer's disease must feel like.
This quilt has a Traditional Sleeve.
This quilt earned $1,000 for the AAQI.
