Two little AAQI quilts completed and registered yesterday. Now awaiting mailing instructions.The black and green quilt is named "Role Reversal". I watched my sister-in-law take care of her mother in their home for several years. The parent becomes the child. Two of the 4-patch units are turned so that the green is where the gold should be, representing this switch of position in a relationship with a parent with Alzheimer's.
The blue and brown quilt is named "Early-Onset=Early Retirement". Many years ago our family doctor, who was a soft spoken, kind man, took early retirement. It was a while before we learned that it was because he had been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's. The pinwheel blocks represent the cogs that turn, one catching another, causing movement on all of the connecting parts. One thing leads to another--like a diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer's led to early retirement.
I've kept Gidget busy this week quilting up a lap quilt that I want finished by the end of the month so that it can be gifted.
Just used an all over pattern, but I think the quilting is too dense--not as soft as I'd like. I'm learning.
Yesterday DD#2 and a couple of her friends came over to quilt. (You knew you'd be on the blog, didn't you?) Lots of quilting, talking and laughing. It was fun--come back anytime!
Can you believe how short this post is? I can't. But most of my current projects are gifts and swaps, so they have to stay unpublished for a while yet.
