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.

Mosquito In My Bed
This quilt was in response to the quote on the AAQI website "if you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in bed with a mosquito". The giant mosquito is about to bite the sleeping women. This quilt is up for auction at the AAQI website alzquilts. I learned that less is more when hinting at a figure in the bed. I used trapunto for the bed to make it stand out. The shade is made from taffeta and the fan has chinese letters which says - mosquito quilt effective. This quilt raised $150 for Alzheimer's in the December, 2010 auction.
