This small quilt is 8.5 x 11.5 inches. It is made of silk organza and very soft pretty satin, as well as cotton between the layers. There is printed cloth below the top layer (that is the circular designs), and I also added a Hmong reverse appliqué piece that looks like a labyrinth. It is beaded around the circles and the word, Qi is embroidered there with gold thread. This would be a wonderful gift for someone who really needed Qi. I am donating it to The Alzheimer's Initiative, http://www.alzquilts.org. We make a commitment to make and donate one quilt each month and if we are unable to do that, we can buy a quilt online from the organization. This is my contribution for February. If you want to purchase it or to donate to the organization, or perhaps one of the other beautiful quilts, you can go to their web site and click on quilts and they will come up. This is a wonderful way to do a good thing and have a beautiful piece of art too.
