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. When Mike (her son) and I were living together, she offered to make me a few dresses. I was so tickled. We found a t-shirt material and a pattern for a tank dress. I loved it so much that she made me 3 more. I wore out those dresses and I caught her smiling every time she saw me wearing them. Since then, when I would make something that someone could wear or use, I told them the best compliment is to see it worn out several years later. I miss her very much.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
