Bah Humbug!


7148 – Bah Humbug!
Michele Bilyeu
Salem, OR USA
Width: 12" Length: 9"
Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics with some hand painting, embroidery floss details and free motion quilting.
Artist Statement: Everyone has those "bah humbug" moments, when everything that can go wrong, does! We can choose how we handle life's challenges, but someone with Alzheimer's cannot. It's up to us to make the best of whatever life has to offer us and help those who cannot help themselves. This quilt is filled with the good will that says "Bah Humbug!" to ALL challenges and "yes" to making the best of things...day by day!


Dedication: For all of those who face life's challenges and in the spirit of unruly determination to keep going no matter what!
Bah Humbug is now on the "For Sale" page and available for purchase! All profits from the sale of AAQI quilts go to fund Alzheimer's research. Please consider the purchase of this quilt ...for yourself, as a gift, or for anyone having a 'Bah Humbug!' kind of day!

When I made this quilt, I had joined Tonya Ricucci's Bah Humbug liberated letters quilt challenge...and of course Tonya had just had knee surgery. So, I couldn't help myself...vision of band-aids, crutches and bah humbug moments flew threw my head! I just had to make a Bah Humbug! art quilt for donation to AAQI.

We all have Bah Humbug! moments....but having someone acknowledge it and cheer you up with good humor and maybe a little art quilt...just might help and it certainly reminds all of us that someone out there truly cares!

It's been listed by AAQI as for sale for $75. Won't you consider a donation towards funding Alzheimer's research by buying this little quilt for someone you love, today?

PS on buying a quilt from AAQI:
For those of you in the AAQI QAM club, it fulfills the requirement for the purchase of a quilt for the Quilt A Month club for June. Remember! It's just as wonderful to buy a quilt as it is to make one each month ;)
