Spectacular quilt! I love it so much, I wish I can be good enough to accomplish a quilt as such. I also admire your dedication for Alzheimer's. Our family has lost a wonderful mother to that disease. Good work!

I love this. Can you tell us a little more about it. I see you did it from the Craftsy class scrap quilting which I am taking but you must be incredibly creative
brendaken8845366 answered:
I do not know how scrap quilting got posted. It is actually from Carol Ann Waugh's Stupendous Stitching Craftsy class, which I would recommend. She is a great teacher. The circle in the center is made from thread scraps. I put the thread scraps between 2 layers of Solvy, a water soluable stabilizer. I free motion stitched over it to bond the threads to each other. Then I used beads to embellish it.
