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. She was funny even when she would make a mistake. Shortly after I moved in she had made mashed potatoes for dinner and I was amazed by the process. My Mom used the instant, so I never saw them made from scratch. She kept messing with them and messing with them. She was clearly not happy with them. She gave me a bite; that was it, I was in heaven. She was so upset they were lumpy and I was thrilled that they were real. I make lumpy mashed potatoes all the time and think about her every time I make them. I miss her very much.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
