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. One of her later anniversaries, I think the 45th one, her husband James bought her a tennis bracelet. She wore it every day after that. She would pause and take the other hand and slowly spin it around at least once a day. She joked about splitting it in half and sharing it with each of the girls when she passed as to not start any quarrels. Until then, I will just look at the sparkles. I miss her very much.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
