A Flow of Flowers


Size: 11½” x 8¾”


Every fall there is a big quilt show in Houston, and the quiltart list has people talking about going, and others sad that they can’t go. In 2007, the idea of a “Stay at Home” challenge developed for those of us not going. The project was to create a small quilt, no bigger than 9″x12″, to be given to the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative for auction as part of the “Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts” project; this piece has been auctioned off.

The fabric for this piece comes from Belize, scraps given to me by a Mayan seamstress in January 2007. The brown flowers are part of the background material, with pieces cut from other remnants. I used eyelash yarn with gradations of blue-green to light green to outline the pieces and the edges of the quilt.
