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. Not only did she have a huge heart, but she also had a mischievousness about her. When her daughter Paula was much younger, she went downstairs to make some popcorn. Anne heard her coming upstairs so she waited until Paula almost got to the top and then jumped out and said “Boo”! Yup, popcorn went everywhere. Can’t tell you how many times she told me this story and giggled when she did. I miss her very much.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $69.28 for the AAQI.
