Artist Statement

“Yes, you will do a beautiful job on this…even though it’s your first time to enter a quilt,” stated my quilting friend from Connecticut. So I was ‘hooked’ and began searching through the website. Remembering my childhood elementary eight years of instruction with Benedictine nuns in a small town in southern Colorado, I knew that Sister Alicia proved to be an excellent choice as I researched her biography of dedication which was initiated in Colorado and still exists today.
