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 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. This lady could put love into her meals. You felt it every time you sat down to eat a meal. She loved using placemats that her husband’s Mother and Sister made for every meal. Can’t tell you how many times she would tell me about the details of the tatting lace and the stitching for the different sets. I miss her very much.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
