Artist's Statement: I took a class with Sue Benner last summer at QSDS on fusing and composition. I used a black and white silk blouse remnant for the background, and my own nature photo's for the "squares". It was a pleasure to play with the materials, and I thought it represented the chaos of a person losing their ability to remember who was important - but still gain joy from nature.

Dedication: A good friends mother recently died of Alzheimer's Disease. She is having a hard time grieving what was left of her mother. I wanted to honor the mother who had raised her friend to be a wonderful teacher, mother, wife and friend.

This quilt is displayed with a traditional sleeve.
