It's good to revisit - Portrait of Helen sold in a SAQA Auction

 "Helen" was sold a few years ago in an auction for Studio Art Quilt Associates, aka SAQA.  I loved making this piece based upon a portrait I painted.
12"X12" textile portrait of cotton and batik fabrics, fusible applique, machine quilting, and set on a second backing of black felt.

The title for this portrait is special because my mother-in-law's name is also Helen. It doesn't look anything like her, but she is very dear to me.  My husband and I have been her caregivers - at 92 she is failing after two strokes.  Sad times.  (which also explains the gap in my posts)
best to you all, deborah
