11,056 - Forget Me Not

Diana DeWitt
Beaufort, SC United States

Width: 8.5" Length: 10.5"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: All fabrics are 100% cotton. The piece is hand appliquéd and hand quilted with several rows of echo quilting.

Artist Statement: Making a quilt for AAQI was a challenge put out by a member of our online quilt group - Stroll the Block. I chose to make a Forget Me Not with distorted leaves. The Forget Me Not is so that we will never forget those who suffer from this disease, and hoping those who suffer will somehow never forget those of us who love them. The distorted leaves represent what Alzheimer’s does to the mind.

Dedication: To my Aunts Grace and Bess - we will never forget you.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $21 for the AAQI.
