Materials/Techniques: This quilt is made from old fabric except for the piping and binding.

Artist's Statement: Years ago my husband was at a garage sale and he found a little box of really small scraps of material. It looked to him to be old and he asked about it. The woman running the sale said they were moving her mother out of her house and he could talk with her if he wanted. He went over to the elderly lady and asked how old the fabric was. She replied that it was old, some of it very old. He asked if she knew the time frame it was from and sadly she said, "I don't know." Then she said, "That's why I have to leave my home. I can't remember things any more." He told her his wife would like the scraps and would make something from them. I have kept them for at least 10 years knowing that someday I would find a good use for them. This quilt is from the large number of blue pieces, some of them barely large enough for the blocks.

Dedication: For all the people who have to give up their homes and possessions as they grow older.
