"This quilt is dedicated to my Aunt Esther and Aunt Helen. They slipped thier earthly bonds within a month of each other in early 2018. I needed to put my sadness somewhere, so I pulled out the fuschia top that I had painted that previous summer and turned my sadness into joy. These fuschia blossoms were at least 4-5" long and danced in the wind. While stitching, I thought of my aunties twirling around in a joyous dance. They are the Twirly Girls." -Andrea Brokenshire
