Artist Statement: 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 had a way of dealing with stressful situations where she would close her eyes so she wouldn’t make comments. For example: When my husband’s father was teaching him how to drive, she would get so nervous that she wouldn’t look. Only just recently did I realize why my husband would ask me to close my eyes when he was driving a bit aggressively, which worked for me. I miss her very much.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
