Width: 8.5"   Length: 11.75"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton; machine pieced/quilted

Artist's Statement: The music theme honors my mother, who was a gifted pianist. I chose True Love's Knot as the block because, for all the sadness and loss that come with Alzheimer's, it also has brought our family together and strengthened our love for one another. The pattern in the green fabric conveys some of how the mind's connections are severed because of Alzheimer's.

Dedication: For my mother, Kathryn Storrs Cracroft, who remains gracious, sweet, and loving in spite of the ravages of this disease.

This quilt is displayed with a traditional sleeve.

This quilt earned $50.00 for Alzheimer's research.
