Width: 12"   Length: 9"

Materials/Techniques: I used 2 silk screens borrowed from my friend, Sandy, for the center. The fabric is a silk piece I dyed. Cheryl, another friend gave me a gift and tied it with a strip of the printed fabric. I enhanced it and embellished with metallic and wool yarns and threads. The outer border and binding are made from a Caryl Fallert fabric. The piping is corded. The fast finish triangles are altered--the corners are open.

Artist Statement: This is an original design "with a little help from my friends".

Dedication: This is dedicated to my friend, Elsie Longworth, and her late husband, Jim. She was his caretaker as he struggled with Alzheimer's.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $105.51 for the AAQI.
