9177 - Alzheimer's Ups and Downs

Claire Rohloff
Bloomsbury, NJ USA

Width: 11.5" Length: 9"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabric, metallic and cotton thread/paper pieced, embroidered and quilted.

Artist Statement: Fonts and letters make interesting design elements. I designed the letters with different characteristics such as short and tall to spell out Alzheimer's. Using paper piecing for the basis of the design, I pieced the letters and embroidered with gold metal. This quilt was made as part of the 2011 Challenge for Courthouse Quilters Guild of Hunterdon County, New Jersey. Recently, a few of our members have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s so we thought it was important to help fund research.

Dedication: For my mother, Margaret Rohloff.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $50.81 for the AAQI.
