Width: 8.25" Length: 11"

Materials/Techniques: This quilt is a whole cloth cotton quilt with the design drawn and dyed with Fabrico markers. It is heavily quilted in an echo treatment to bring out the horse’s features. I’ve also added some prairie points for some additional splash. It is an original design.

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. When she cooked her cakes and pies, she would fret over this and that until she was satisfied. While we would be enjoying these said goodies (and I do mean enjoying) she would be very critical on her own cooking… needed a little more sugar or it fell a little…etc. She was never quite happy. We were!!! My hubby does that same thing when he grills. We just say, better try again and I will be happy to eat it then too. I miss her very much.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $83.14 for the AAQI.
