Image Statement: Whimsical Blues is a quilt made up of pieces from an 1800's blouse's lace and fabric, my grandmother's tatting, crochet pieces, and scraps of my indigo shibori with embroidery and sashiko stitiching. This piece is not only a memory piece of years gone by but an example of how these fabrics can be brought to new life.
