Two years ago I made a quilt for the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI). This is my second quilt for them.
It is machine appliqued and quilted. The center “heart” fabric is from a silk tie who’s theme was in the guise of “Where’s Waldo?” but involved Santa. The confusion and fun inspired me to make this small quilt I call “Let’s Go.” Let’s go on a trip and make some memories.
I cut out the road signs and the red car from some Route 66 fabric had I used for a previous quilt.
The quilt is 9 in X 11.5 in. I used the fast triangles method for hanging.
I have registered and mailed the quilt. It is not up for sale or auction on the site yet, but will be in the future as quilt #7034.
