Width: 8.5" Length: 8.5"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: 100% cotton fabric, cotton batting, 100% cotton thread.

Artist Statement: I chose cool-toned floral fabrics for this scrappy little quilt. The lighter areas remind me of walking paths between the four floral areas, so I decided to call the quilt "Garden Paths.” My grandmother loved to garden and enjoyed planting both flowers and vegetables. Unfortunately she developed Alzheimer’s in her later years and was unable to continue her favorite hobbies, but she still enjoyed looking at the nature's beauty.

Dedication: I made this quilt in loving memory of both my great-grandmother ("Mammaw") and my grandmother ("Granny"), both of whom developed Alzheimer’s in their later years. I treasure the memories of both of them, especially the memories of them patiently teaching me how to sew and quilt.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $40 for the AAQI.
