AAQI Facebook Foto Friday: "Ode to Gwen" by Merrie Jo Schroeder

AAQI Quilt #11658, "Ode to Gwen" by Merrie Jo Schroeder, Port Angeles, WA
It's Facebook Foto Friday again, and I've got a quilt to share this week. The quilt is called "Ode to Gwen" and it was made by Merrie Jo Schroeder of Port Angeles, Washington. That's the same town as my friend Merrily Ripley, and I also have a quilt by Merrily in the AAQI collection.

Hmmm...I wonder if Merry and Merrily know each other...

The quilt was started in a Gwen Marston workshop in Sisters last summer, and is dedicated to Schroeder's mother, Betty Jane Smith, who suffered from Alzheimer's.

Saw it, had to have it!

For information about how to donate or purchase these wonderful little quilts, which raise funds to support Alzheimer's research, please go to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative web site:


  1. It took about a half second to realize who the Gwen is referred to in the quilt title. What are the dimensions of this quilt, Bill?

  2. Thanks for purchasing my little quilt, Bill. I'm honored to have one of my quilts in your collection. Thanks also for supporting AAQI -- one of my favorite charities.
