Designer: Original design

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

Artist Statement: I made this little quilt using 30's reproduction fabrics in several pastel rainbow colors. The fans remind me of my great-grandmother, "Mammaw", who made a number of quilts during her lifetime. Her quilts were made with whatever scraps she had on hand, and even though she often "made do" with even the tiniest of scraps, her quilts always turned out beautifully. She was an amazingly talented woman.

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 $32.33 for the AAQI.
