Width: 9" Length: 9"

Materials/Techniques: Commercial back and background (overpainted). Hand dyed Rust-Tex Stormy Skies fabric by Lois Jarvis sealed from the back with gel medium and tissue paper. Flower center is same commercial fabric as background, unpainted and surrounded by black beads. Finished with a corded fiber edge with fast finish triangles at all corners, because this piece can be hung 4 different directions.

Artist's Statement: This piece was made as part of the 2008 Quiltart Stay At Home Challenge with Rust-Tex donated by Lois Jarvis. This is my interpretation of a photograph I saw on-line of a sunflower in black and white.

This quilt earned $100 for Alzheimer's research.
