I-0359  The Shirt Off Her Back

Ami Simms
Flint, MI   USA

Width: 9"   Length: 11.5"

Materials/Techniques: Commercial shirt front, buttons, cotton patchwork; machine pieced and machine quilted. Lapel pin embellishment.

Artist Statement: I thought it would be fun to ask some of my famous quilting friends to literally give me the shirt off their backs so that I could turn them into quilts which raise money for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.

This is the first quilt completed. Marsha McCloskey has signed it in the upper left hand corner and has included her Feathered Star lapel pin.

The back of the quilt has some of her Staples (Clothworks) fabric, including the selvage edge with her name printed on it.
