AAQI # 13074, Swimming With Thread by Michelle Freedman
Now that the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative has reached its million dollar goal, they are beginning to wrap up the fundraiser and sell off quilts. I was curious to see what was available, and found two wonderful quilts made by friends from the Portland Modern Quilt Guild- Michelle Freedman and Susan Beal. Of course, I had to have both quilts.
AAQI #13083, Improv Rays by Susan Beal
These two mini modern quilts are also part of history. Susan and Michelle were instrumental in the establishment of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild, and both have presided over the guild, serving important roles during a time of phenomenal growth. Kudos! And what a lucky guy I am.
Woke up in the middle of the night last week, it was around 3:30 AM, and bought a quilt. It's a 1970s polyester double knit 16-patch from Florida. Never would have thought to put these colors together, but somehow it works. In good condition, with the exception of one patch.
OOPS! One of the fee things that can destroy polyester double knit is an open flame. Looks like one of the quilt's previous owners may have been smoking in bed!
Didn't Peggy Lee sing about that? Why yes, she did!
