Artist Statement

The song “Moonlight in Vermont” has been performed by many different artists. My favorite version is by Ray Charles. This quilt is my interpretation of the mellow, somewhat lonely quality of Ray Charles’ voice as he sings about Vermont.


Raw edge applique, hand guided machine quilting.


Hand dyed cotton, acrylic tulle, silver foil fabrics; rayon, polyester and metallic threads.
