Width: 8.5" Length: 11.5"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: This quilt contains half-square triangles from the SoTTT’s exchange on thequiltshow.com. We swapped about a quarter of a million hst’s with quilters from all over the world. I sewed them into a strip and placed a large piece of hand-dyed fabric. There is a meandering design with tiny hst’s and loops over the strip and on the larger piece; well let’s just say I just had some fun with it.

Artist Statement: Why I made this quilt? Alzheimer’s has touched our family. We lost someone very precious to us… to me. Her family name was Grandma Anne. To me, she was my mother-in-law and so very special. I hope this will help aide in the fight, so that others don’t lose their special someone to Alzheimer’s.

Dedication: This quilt is dedicated to Grandma Anne. The best way to describe Grandma Anne is that she was born to be a grandma. She had a huge heart, smile that went with it and would listen and keep you company all day long. She would make you feel at home right away. I miss her very much.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $69.28 for the AAQI.
