More AAQI quilts

I know I said that I needed to focus on the projects that I have already started, but I had an idea and I had to try it out.   One of the things that I enjoy is painting.  I Have always wanted to make a quilt based on a painting.  I have been wanting to try out printing fabric with the computer, so I scanned a few pictures and printed them….they are the perfect size to make into Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative  quilts.

here are the paintings

I looked at the dates on these…2008…yikes I need to get the paints out again!  Be that as it may here are the printed on fabric versions.


Next I will trim them and add a fabric frame (they can only be a maximum of 9″ x 12″)  and then do some hand quilting….progress pictures soon

I encourage everyone to visit Celebrate Hand Quilting for a fantastic give away….$100 gift certificate from the Stencil Company!  The deadline to enter is Aug 4.

Happy Quilting

    I came across your blog by accident and wanted to tell you that I have enjoyed reading it and have learned a lot from the blog. I do make small/doll quilts but have never made a full sized quilt. Even though I do not consider myself a quilter, I grew up with quilters and under quilting frames. I have always loved them. Louise
