Once a Shining Star

Once a Shining Star

Once a Shining Star was made for the Alzeheimer's Art Quilt Initiative and will be travelling throughout U S A to major quilt shows, quilt guild shows, museums and galleries for the purpose of raising awareness and funding reasearch. All proceeds will be donated to Alzeheimer's research.

I used the Memory Block as the basis of my design and added a wreath of forget me not fabric to the block. The forget me not flower is the symbol of the Alzeheimer's New Zealand Inc. I faded the bright gold to cream and the green became very dark at the edges. I quilted an overall design of interlocking hearts and filled in the spaces with a meandering pattern. The final touch was some forget me not beads scattered over the quilt.

Quilt size 36" x 36" (92cms x 92cms) Donated to Alzeheimer's USA.
