Tumbling Blocks

Tumbling Blocks is my Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt for September.  I don't often say this about my work, but I am proud of this little quilt!  I've been trying to figure out what it is about this quilt that makes it so special to me and I think it's the fact that it is so different from the quilts that I usually make.  I don't think I will ever consider myself an art quilter, but making quilts for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative has given me an opportunity to let my inner artist loose and expand my quilting horizons.  The small scale of the Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts is the perfect venue for trying a new style or technique too!  Why not let your inner artist loose on a Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt and see what happens?

I like that one, Susan! I like the smaller projects. They do give you a great opportunity to try something new.

Have a great weekend!

It reminds me of a fish tank! The colors, the stitches how they look like moving water, and the blocks look like the fish! I love it!!

I like everything about this "little quilt", the colors, the gentle curves in the quilting, it is perfect in everyway, but still has the message for the purpose! Well done Susan!
