Width: 6"   Length: 20 "

Materials/Techniques: Cotton "whole cloth"; free-hand machine quilted. emboidered

Artist's Statement: When I free-motion quilt I practice on a scrap. It helps me make sure the machine is threaded properly, that I like the thread color/size, and that the design is appropriate. It also gets my muscles in the mood and helps me rehearse how I'm going to move the quilt under the needle. This was one of the scraps I used to test the quilting design in the border of my quilt called "Underlying Current" which is currently a part of the traveling Alzheimer's quilt exhibit, "Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece." I also used this piece to experiment with water colors on fabric, something I learned I don't like! I normally don't pipe and bind my scraps, but I finished this up in case anyone would like it.
