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. This woman could wear out a crossword dictionary. James, her husband would tear out two different crossword puzzles for her, one from the local small town paper and the other I believe from the Wall Street Journal. This was part of her morning routine. Drink coffee in her little Dunkin Donuts coffee mug that was probably 40 years old, and work her crossword puzzles. Sometimes they would come to her easily and she would simply just finish quickly. Other times, it would annoy her and she would get a little miffed, put it down and about 10 minutes later she was at it again. Her miffed was cute. I miss her very much.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
