"Whispering Winds On NE23-07-01-w2"
Trend Tex 2015 Challenge Quilt "I found the abandon home; its front door slightly ajar, wire threaded through the keyhole and wrapped around the door knob. I wanted to cut those rusty wires so the wind could sweep all the precious memories into the universe before they sunk into the ground with the decomposing structure. Instead, I reconstructed the image in fabric. Now only my quilting lines reveal the wires leaving the wind free to grant my wish"
