1550 - The Ties That Bind

1550 - The Ties That Bind
Amy Brondyke
Rochester, NY   USA

Width: 8.5"   Length: 8.5"

Materials/Techniques: Yarns and ribbons couched to quilt sandwich, with machine quilting, applied eyelets and yarn ties.

Artist's Statement: The arrangement of the tiny quilt units follows the traditional "Bright Hopes" block. I left the small center empty, signifying the "core" person that disappears when Alzheimer's takes over. The ties symbolize the love and caring that bind both the patient and his or her loved ones together.

This quilt is part of a members' challenge to submit a quilt (or quilts) for AAQI this fall.

Dedication: In honor of Laurel G., who has early-onset Alzheimer's, and those who love her.

This quilt has a plain back.

This quilt earned $65.00 for Alzheimer's research.
