Width: 8.5" Length: 11.25"

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. I asked my hubby if he had any memories to share and the first one that came to his head was the couch. He is 6’4” and they had a very low couch that was kind of close to the stairs. Mike would come running down the stairs as any teenager would do and promptly jump over the couch and barely ducking in time just missing the ceiling fan. Of course he would get a “Michael” bellowed at him along with a squeal and a giggle shortly after wards. He would always try and get her by surprise with this. I miss her very much.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $69.28 for the AAQI.
