15,148 - Stupid, Crazy LOVE

Belews Creek, NC USA

Width: 8.5" Length: 8.5"

Materials/Techniques: I took a scrappy block made from cotton fabrics and added some heart buttons.

Artist Statement: I have loved and will miss this project tremendously. Even if I get in my sewing studio for nothing else, I have made at least one quilt a month except last month when I bought one. I called this block Stupid, Crazy LOVE because: Yesterday I donated platelets at my local Red Cross. I always watch a scary, suspenseful movie so I stay awake for the 2 hours in the chair. The man next to me kept laughing. The sound of laughter is one of my favorite things. I asked the nurse what movie he was watching. She said Stupid, Crazy LOVE. I said, "Aren’t they all!" We all laughed. May all the caregivers remembers the happy, joyous times spent with their loved ones and may the cure be found soon.

Dedication: To all caregivers and researchers who dedicate countless hours.

This quilt has a Hanging Ring.

This quilt earned $4.62 for the AAQI.
