Width: 8"   Length: 11.5"

Materials/Techniques: Antique quilt block circa 1940 or earlier. Hand quilted with cotton thread, machine and hand appliqué, cotton hand sewn binding.

Artist Statement: This is one of my blocks from my antique block collection. I really like this approach to the lantern block in contrast to the one that is currently popular. The colors and fabrics chosen are truly reflective of the period of time in which it was made. I adapted the block to the mini wall hanging.
Sonia Callahan

Dedication: To Alzheimer’s patients and victims who lived in the period during which this block was made.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $15.00 for the AAQI.
