Dedication: My sisters and I spent many happy vacations visiting southern Indiana with our family. We loved spending time in the shade of the Black Walnut tree. The farmhouse was very small, basically three rooms, where nine children were raised. The quilt is dedicated to my sister, Rosalie, her husband Art, who remains at her side, and all her other caregivers.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $60 for the AAQI.
