Materials/Techniques: This quilt contains half-square triangles from the SoTTT’s exchange on thequiltshow.com. We swapped about a quarter of a million hsts 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 hsts 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. She loved things that were handmade. She would stop and take the time to admire workmanship, kind of like smelling the roses. There were several quilts that James’ (her husband) Grandmother made and she would tell me about each one and how it was hand stitched and pieced together. She is the reason I always wanted to make my first quilt. I miss her very much.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
