Healing Quilts

There are a lot of large, complex quilts which I designed and made, and Jimmy contributed to, that we made in the 1980s to early 2000s, and this is the start of a gallery in which to show them to you, focusing on them in this category of healing. They are, of course, still within the whole body of our work as diary quilts.

I'm beginning with Tattle Tails: Crocodiles for Alzheimer's, because many people have asked about it, as it's about my experiences with my mother having AD.

So here is Tattle Tails, and I'll eventually add more. Had to dust off my slide scanner to get this one, but it was pretty easy and good practice, so I plan to do more. (Many of these quilts are in my pre-digital archives.) Enjoy.
