Artist's Statement: This represents the difficulty Alzheimer's patients have trying to remember a point they were trying to make, given the disorientation and memory loss they experience.

Dedication: For my father who had Alzheimer's. I recall how he would try to tell me something and lose his concentration in the middle of a sentence or thought. Of course, as the disease grew stronger, the points virtually disappeared. They seemed to fade into oblivion.

This quilt is displayed with a traditional sleeve.

This quilt earned $27.50 for Alzheimer's research.
