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 Christmas. When we would come up to visit she would take me around for drives later at night and we would see the Christmas lights in the neighborhood. She would tell me the latest news of this neighborhood; all newsworthy and nothing gossipy. She was never a busy body, but relished happy news or was taken by times of need and would help. I miss her very much.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
