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.

Three pictures of rescued dogs were printed on cotton fabric, layered with batting and thread painted. A background was printed of poems about dogs. A Peltex frame was placed over the background. The back of the quilt gives information about the nine dogs that have been rescued by very special people. The dogs are Jackie, Ruthie and Josie. Although I allowed extra room for squaring finished quilt I should have allowed more. The trapunto takes up more fabric in heavily layered areas and it is hard to predict the shrinkage.
