My second quilt from the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative arrived last week. I twas made by Paula Dennee of Colorado. I've followed her blog for a few years and when she posted this scottie quilt I knew I was interested! If you haven't checked out the AAQI website lately go on over...lots of great little quilts and all the money goes to help fund Alzheimer research.
I've been meaning to send them a small quilt but every time the quilt ends up too large! Of course I could just cut one down...need to work on that!
I have a large collection of antique and vintage quilts but I also collect some smaller contemporary pieces as well. This display is in my hallway and includes pieces by Tonya Rucucci, Margaret Hunt, and Rachel Thomas. I rotate the small quilts in this hallway every few months. They are so much easier to handle and store than the full size antique ones!
Organization in the sewing studio continues....hope to have enough out to clean the carpet tomorrow then we can move the furniture around. I looked at lighting options again and think I have it worked out. Who knew there was so much to choose from! I also bought some new stools...one for the kitchen and another for my cutting table. The ones with the wheels are just too unstable for me (don't ask how I know....) and the adjustable metal one that I had my heart set on ended up being very uncomfortable. This red one is just right. (and no I didn't buy it just because it is red and matches my new scottie wallhanging! They do look really nice together though!)
