|"Night Flight" 1982 by Andrea Leong Scadden, aka Andrea Balosky|
She wanted to find a home for her quilt, "Night Flight" and I spoke up right away. The quilt was made in 1982 when Andrea lived in Seattle. It was included in the 1983 Quilt National. At the time, her name was Andrea Leong Scadden.

She doesn't really make quilts anymore, but a few years ago came out of retirement briefly to make several little quilts for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI). I bought as many as I possibly could.

The last time I saw her was a couple years ago at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. She was in the U.S. for a visit that summer, and came to visit me at my home before returning to Mungpoo, Darjeeling, India - in the Himilayas, where she now lives. I have begged for her to come back to America, but she is happy where she is now. I think about her often. Hopefully she will come back and visit again soon!
