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 was a country girl and knew how to cook. They never went out to eat because they couldn’t beat the meals at home. With their roots in Georgia and mine in Texas, I was exposed to several new dishes. She would spring things on me like fried okra, seven layer salad, fried gizzards and pickled pigs feet. Ok, I couldn’t do the pigs feet. But I think she knew that before she made them. I miss her very much.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
