Annie’s Legacy

by Zena Thorpe of Chatsworth, California

Artist Statement:

A copy in my medium of appliqué of an embroidery that my mother made about 65 years ago. Mother never quilted, but she certainly taught me the joy of handwork. The Jacobean-style center is bordered by examples of decorative work from that same period.”
