I worked at St. John's in Springfield, MO on second shift. On Wednesday they had a great spaghetti dish but the Saturday's spaghetti - not so much.
Many of the quilts shown were made to raise money for Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.

Ami (ah mee) Sims founded Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. This a sevice dog she trained as a puppy. I printed the picture on fabric but the glasses were unclear. I painted them black which didn't look right either so I printed her picture after distorting it and framing it on the glasses. I glammed Daisy up a bit with a collar and glitter nail polish on the glasses. I gave this quilt to Ami to enjoy, regift or sell as she sees fit. I learned to plan ahead. This quilt has five of trapunto and if you sketch or trace the immage and then plan which layers should have the most batting.
