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 first got a taste of their (Grandma Anne and James) generosity when I saw one day they had boxes and boxes of clothes in the backyard. James had gone for a bike ride and saw that someone dumped many boxes of clothes. He drove back and retrieved them all with the car. She washed them all and sorted them. Then they turned around and donated them. These were huge boxes and no small feat. I miss her very much.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $69.28 for the AAQI.
