Mom and Dad Quilt

34” x 26.5”

I wanted to do a quilt of my father.  It was a way for me to find some sort of closure after he passed away in January 2008.  I found there was no way to do a quilt of my dad without my mother in it also.  Together for almost 58 years, I could not separate them in fabric.

I used a snapshot I had taken of the two of them a few years ago at the Rochester airport as the basis for this quilt.  I wanted it to be a casual scene of the two of them.

This piece is constructed of commercial cottons, using my puzzle piecing method.  It is heavily quilted with rayon and polyester threads.
