Trego, WI USA
Width: 9" Length: 11.75"
Materials/Techniques: All cotton fabric and batting and thread, machine pieced and machine quilted. If I remember correctly, there are about 30 fabrics/colors in the 108 squares.
Artist Statement: One of my dear friends saw a quilt block made up of many tiny squares and challenged me to make an AAQI quilt on that model. So, I did! Each square is a little less than 1" on a side. The fabrics are all from a 'charm pack' of the Riley Blake 'Shades' line, except for the border, which is a black solid. It is machine quilted very lightly, with light grey thread in a long stitch.
Dedication: Like all of my AAQI quilts, this one is dedicated to the caregivers, especially Andy's extraordinary friend. Andy was a well-respected doctor before Alzheimer's abruptly cut his career short. In the more than two years since his diagnosis, one of Andy's friends has faithfully taken Andy for a round of golf or a set of tennis, every single Thursday. I salute that level of loyalty and faithfulness!
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $55.00 for the AAQI.
