8998 - The Cathedral is Falling Down    ($70)

Width: 9" Length: 12"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: Vintage cotton fabrics, assorted buttons. This quilt is an irregular shape but is 9 X 12 at its largest points.

Artist Statement: I found a piece of vintage cathedral windows quilting and wanted to rework it as an AAQI quilt. I deconstructed the blocks and put them back together in a random manner using buttons to secure them in place. I wanted to portray the idea of something as firm and steadfast as a cathedral starting to crumble and fall apart, much like the mind does when dementia sets in.

Dedication: Dedicated to Olive Lowden and Clarence Evans.

This quilt has a Soda Pull-Tab.

This quilt earned $70 for the AAQI.
