Easthampton, MA USA
Width: 9.5" Length: 9.25"
Materials/Techniques: A mixture of fabrics with some tulle, beading and shells to emphasize areas of the quilt. The entire quilt is hand sewn without a machine stitch!
Artist Statement: I visited a quilt show in Amherst, Massachusetts and met the clearly very dedicated volunteers at the exhibit. I have had dear friends and relatives with Alzheimer’s and this seemed like a fine way to raise funds for a very good cause. I also liked the fact that the program is served by volunteers and that no money is wasted on high executive salaries!
Dedication: This quilt is dedicated to all the supportive families and friends who have had loved ones suffering from this dreaded disease. My hope is that money raised by the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative will really help in the research. We truly need to find answers and soon!
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $41.29 for the AAQI.
