Materials/Techniques: Cotton scraps sewn together in a crazy quilt style, then quilted with fun edgings by machine or with embroidery stitches by hand. The yo-yo was a last-minute addition to create a bit of balance.
Artist Statement: The recent Empire QuiltFest, held in October 2011 in upstate New York, had a theme of "When Life Hands You Scraps." My response to that challenge was this quilt. "Number 20 for AAQI" is exactly that-- the 20th group of scraps that have found themselves worked into a donation quilt for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. After two years, I am well on my way to meeting my $1000 Promise goal and am thrilled to see where my work for AAQI has taken my creativity and me.
Dedication: Dedicated to all those women who will use their scraps to make an AAQI donation quilt this year or in years to come!
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $41.57 for the AAQI.
