I made this quilt for the juried exhibition I Remember Mama. It travelled as part of that exhibition across America and to Lyon, France. It depicts my mom at approximately age 19 in the large picture, soon after she left her home in Hibbing, Minnesota to come to Washington, DC to be one of the government girls. Behind her, printed on fabric, are pictures from her life as she got married and raised her family. Mom had died in 2002. Going through the family pictures and making this quilt was healing for me.
Cotton fabric. Machine and hand applique, machine quilted.
26.5 x 37 inches
