-  The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker:
-  Quilt size: 74" x 112"
-  "Any animal pattern for country."
-  How did you choose the materials used in your quilt? "I made this quilt for a granddaughter because of her love for animals as she had rabbits in 4-H projects. The colors were mostly red, white, and blue pieces."
-  Quiltmaker's motivation: This quilt commemorates a birthday.
-  What was your primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest? Do you frequently enter your quilts in competition? "My daughter saw contest rules in Good Housekeeping and told me to enter. I've entered in AQS, a juried show, and excepted."
-  How long have you been making quilts? How did you learn to quilt? "1981. I took a class. My many quilts and wall hangings are made only for family, friends, and church."
-  Has being a winner in the Land's End contest made a difference in your life? Has it changed the way you look at your work as a quilt maker? "After forgetting I'd entered, I was very excited to be excepted out of 1000's of entries to send the quilt. It was of great news that I'd won for the state and it was going to international. It's gotten me to love scrap quilts. They are my favorite."
