Materials/Techniques: After pre-washing a lot of fabrics together, I loved the color combination of all the ravelings I got when they came out of the dryer. I covered a circle of white fabric with these ravelings and stitched over them, using water-soluble stabilizer. I couched leftover ribbons and 1/4" fabric slices, then I added some machine embroidery stitches, hand stitches, vintage buttons, beads, and sequins. Fun, fun, fun!!! Thanks Carol Ann for giving me inspiration and teaching me new techniques.
Artist Statement: I created this quilt after taking the online course, "Stupendous Stitching" by Carol Ann Waugh on craftsy.com. I had so much fun playing with different threads and materials. I especially love working with different color combinations. I chose the title for this quilt because I have to live with hope that a cure will be found for Alzheimer's before it strikes another family member, maybe even me.
Dedication: Dedicated to my mother, who colored my world with love.
This quilt has a Hanging Ring.
This quilt earned $65.00 for the AAQI.
