4776 - Hanging On - The Last Leaf

Jean-sophie Wood
Dallas, TX    USA

Width: 8.5"   Length: 11"

Materials/Techniques: Machine pieced and machine quilted.

Artist's Statement: This piece was inspired by a tree in my backyard when I lived in Lansing, Michigan that tenaciously held onto it's last leaf through January, long after all the other leaves on all the other trees had fallen and been buried under the snow.
Jean-sophie Wood

Dedication: For Charlie, an Irishman who lived around the corner, on the same floor as me in a an apartment building on the top of Nob Hill in San Francisco. I experienced him first as a friendly neighbor who always said hello whenever and wherever our paths crossed and later as someone who reacted in fear and confusion whenever I said hello to him. I didn't know what was going on with Charlie until the building manager told me that some family members had come from Ireland to take him back and care for him because of his Alzheimer’s diagnosis.

This quilt has a plain back.
