Purple Meadow Rue
30" x 30"
Purple Meadow Rue is a wildflower that is used in the production of anticancer drugs. I made this for a special cancer survivors exhibit at a local hospital. It will also travel to Auburn for an exhibit later on. This piece has special meaning for me as I lost my mom to cancer over 28 years ago. If only a treatment were available then to help her. It is my hope that the viewers of this quilt see the peace and hope that I want it to convey. It is machine appliqued, machine quilted and I used fabric paints. The Purple Meadow Rue is not an easy flower to depict in fabric. It sometimes grows 6 feet tall with long, purple stalks.
