Faded Glory Finished! (well, almost!)

It still needs the binding hand sewn to the backing, and it still needs a label, but it's essentially done! I think the piping was the perfect solution. This one will be donated to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative where it will be sold to raise money for Alzheimer's research. I dedicated this one to my Dad, who suffers from a variation of Alzheimer's. My artists statement reads: This rose was once beautiful, vibrant, colorful and full of life. It’s now faded and beginning to lose petals. If one looks closely, you can still see some of the vibrant color that once was prominent, much like someone who suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease . . . those infrequent flashes of the person they used to be that are so precious.
