Completed for Touring
May 25, 2000

This quilt was originally created so it could tour the United States in order to raise stroke awareness.  Upon completion of touring, it was decided to put it on permanent display.  The idea was to obtain maximum exposure to visitors by displaying it in the Harford County Office Building in Bel Air, Maryland. 

The 24 stroke survivors on this quilt are noted on the following grid, according to their positions on the quilt.
