7777 – Darling Dahlia  ($55)

Wadsworth, IL    USA

Width: 8"   Length: 10"

Materials/Techniques: Vintage embroidery, maker unknown, machine quilted, commercial batik for binding and backing, piping, cotton batting, hand sewn binding.

Artist Statement: I bought this table scarf at a garage sale for $1 with the intention of making it into a Priority Quilt. I liked the idea that it could live life anew as something fresh and different from that which the maker intended. Since the table scarf had two ends, this is the second quilt with this design, the first one having been sold in Houston last year.

Dedication: This quilt is for my Dad who we lost December 14, 2010. He was taken by Alzheimer’s much too soon and we miss him so much!

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $55 for the AAQI.
