    My Matisse Quilt

    This was my first attempt at applique. Everything is hand done. Hand pieced, hand embroidered, hand appliqued, hand batiked, and hand quilted. I gave it to my 82-year-old mother, who can't sew a stitch. I think she likes it.

    I love the movement of the swirling birds against the blues.
