Width: 10" Length: 8"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: This was a dresser scarf that I re-made into a quilt. It has a lovely and colorful three-dimensional thread crocheted appliqué, machine quilting, a batik piping and a batik backing and binding.

Artist Statement: This quilt is made from an estate sale find - someone worked very hard to make this beautiful dresser scarf and I wanted to give it a new life as a Priority Quilt. The workmanship in the thread crocheting is amazing and deserved to be seen again!

This quilt earned $70 for the AAQI.
