Memory Collage I Japanese Beetles: This piece tells the story of Japanese beetles, my grandmother, and her famous rose garden. The fabrics are layered, painted, stamped and screened. They provide the perfect backdrop for imagery. Machine applique, embroidery and quilting further enhance the surface.

About this Gallery: This series was created to capture moments and memories from my childhood. I was a good listener over the years and remember many wonderful stories about my family. These stories grouped with old family pictures and documents make up the subject matter for each quilt. Many surface design processes are incorporated including hand-dyed fabrics, printing, screening and writing.
