This quilt was my entry in the Voices of Inspiration juried show at Waverly House. It was accepted and sold the first evening at the artists' reception. I didn't get a good picture of it so I need to head to Waverly and get a better one.
My introduction to jazz was a Dave Brubeck concert at Drury University in 1964. I can still remember the unexpected joy of listening to him play. I bought a book of his work and attempted to play some of his songs on the piano off and on for many years. When I saw him play the second time I was up close where I could see the size of his hands. They were huge. After that I realized I could never hit those chords with my wee hands but I still had a good time trying.
