“Going to Nana's House” is a quilt for my mother. This quilt contains the handprints of her grandchildren from Christmas 2010 which were traced in my journal. The quilt contains hand-dyed fabric and gelatine prints. The prints are inspired by artwork created by my niece and nephew in my journal from that visit.

Every year, when the family gathers at Nana's house, I bring my journal and art supplies and the kids and I sit and play in my journal!

Machine pieced, machine quilted, hand-beaded and embroidered.
