Today I am playing with the leftover scraps from the quilt top that I “flattened” a few days ago
It was suggested by a few people that I make those scraps into quilts for the Alzheimer’s Quilt Initiative. Alzheimer’s Quilts must be no larger than 9″ x 12″ No exceptions. So there is plenty to make a few. I must admit that it goes against all my quilting instincts to make a quilt so small! I have always said that quilts should be used…as in on a bed…as in functional. It is hard to imagine 9″ x 12″ accomplishing that, but that is not the point of these quilts. The point is to raise money for Alzheimer’s research, and from what I understand there are several people who have become serious collectors of these quilts. So here is what I have so far.
They need to be pressed and quilted (by hand) and bound and then washed (I don’t think a quilt comes to life until it has been washed) This is way outside of what I normally do, and I must say it is rather fun!
Temperature today in Lansing is going top 100 again! most of the day will be spent moving the hose from place to place in the yard and staying cool inside in front of the AC
