My horoscope says I'm in the middle of a whirlwind of creativity - and I feel it!
Here is another mini quilt I made for the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative (actually I made two). I'm calling it Soar Heart Soar.
It symbolizes the people that are affected by the disease. The hearts are separate as each one is affected differently, broken in half by this disease though not torn apart and, yet, held together by the bonds that have always held them together – love, faith, hope. The bright colors symbolize these bonds.
I created it using my favorite raw edge technique - raw edge applique, with a raw edge triangle binding, free motion, echo quilting and (of course) some beading. It is based on a technique created by Jayme Crow called Stitch and Split Applique.
