I have been a fan of Kathleen Loomis for a long time. She teaches and creates award winning quilts using a very labour intensive method that she has named fine line piecing. She inserts a very thin strip a fabric into every seam. I made this quilt using her technique. I had the turquoise print fabric in my stash for a long time and decided that it was time to use it. I pieced and cut and pieced and cut and pieced and cut until I was so tired of it that I decided it was time to quit.
I call this quilt "I Never Made a Quilt for my Mother". It shows the long slow decline into Alzheimer's disease that my mother endured. the top section represents the beautiful vibrant woman who raised five children, was a loving wife and partner and was very creative.
The descent into forgetfulness and dementia was slow but steady. In the final stages she was lost to us.
