I just completed two more small quilts for donation to the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative — a great charity that I strongly support since my parents both suffered from Alzheimer’s.
My mother was an avid gardener, a writer of gardening books and an award-winning photographer. While I didn’t inherit her gardening talents, I did start taking photographs at a young age. Both quilts are based on photos that I took of flowers in my back yard. I edited the photos to remove some of the detail, then I had them printed on fabric.
