Description of Item

3362 - The Unknown Spirit

Laura A. Krasinski
Menomonee Falls, WI   USA

Width: 7.75"   Length: 10.75"

Materials/Techniques: Rusted Fabric, Painted Fabric and Hand dyed fabrics; Fused stitched and quilted.

Artist's Statement: I was sitting in the waiting area of a mental health facility reading my quilting magazine. Houston quilt show was about to begin and someone had mentioned a "stay at home challenge" for quilters unable to attend the show. We were to do a quilt for AAQI. Since I thought I had the time I decided," why not?".
Laura A. Krasinski

Dedication: As I was sitting there a man and his mother came in. She was there (I found out later) for her check up. She has Alzheimer’s. She had asked her son very timidly," how old am I? " He replied," 80 years old." She continued in disbelief on how the time has gone by so quickly. After she took a very short walk down memory lane she asked again, "how old am I?"... her son replied," 80." The woman was so sweet and it just seemed so sad to me. I'm naming my quilt THE UNKNOWN SPIRIT... for these unknown people who are dealing with this disease we call Alzheimer’s.

This quilt is displayed with a soda can pull-tab.
