Piece-Full Memories of My Dad
This scroll was made from fragments that remained after I completed a mourning quilt with snippets of my Dad's ties, dress shirts and wool suits. Each piece has significance and the backing and threads were specifically chosen. The buttons came from his shirts. I slowly hand stitched this piece, celebrating my Father and recalling fond memories.
