"Far Away"

My mother-in-law has Alzheimer's. She loved taking the train from Valparaiso, where she lived, to Chicago. When she was at the point where her memory was going, an image flashed her memory being like looking through a key hole so I decided to make a quilt based on that flash.  The photo is by my friend Ron Porras. There was a time when the Sear's Tower was lite with different colored lights at night. I beaded the edge because I happen to love beading the edges of quilts. I used organza, foiling, hand stitching and couching. I think it is a nice little quilt. I hope whatever home it ends up in loves it. I sure had fun making it.
