Designer: This quilt includes a drawing of William Shakespeare that was designed by Bill Overton, the only man in our quilt guild. Bill gave written permission to use it.
Materials/Techniques: I used embroidery thread, ribbon, braid, cotton fabric, and polyester damask fabric. It is machine quilted using variegated cotton thread.
Artist Statement: I've been wanting to use this sketch of Shakespeare on a Priority quilt for over a year. I decided to look for a quote from the Bard that would go well with it. "Laugh yourself into stitches" is part of a line from Twelfth Night Act 3 scene 2.
Dedication: To the people in the theater who have been affected by Alzheimer's.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $55 for the AAQI.
