Roanoke, VA USAWidth:
Cottons and cotton blends; hand-matched, hand-sewn, and hand-quilted.Artist's Statement:
This design is called a "postage stamp" quilt because all the blocks are so small. It is also a charm quilt, because every block is from a different fabric. (Note: This quilt contains a few non-religious Christmas fabrics.) I call it "Rachel" because that name appears on one of the squares. I enjoyed putting this quilt together. Even though the 71 fabrics are very different, I was reminded of the song that says, "From a distance, there is harmony."
Laura Keyes Perry Dedication:
In loving memory of the Ford Twins, Beulah and Bertha, and in honor of all those who are caregivers to people with this terrible condition.
This quilt earned $35.00 for the AAQI.
