Artist Statement: My mother-in-law, Bertha Cotton, suffered with Alzheimer's for 12 years until she was 92 years old. She loved the colors of coral and turquoise or teal, so they were the inspiration for this quilt. This log cabin quilt has a traditional red center representing heart and family. The many flowers in the red border show her love of flowers and gardening. She was born in Norway and came to the United States at age five. She was very proud of her heritage, hence the title in Norwegian, "Her Favorite Colors”.
Dedication: To Bertha Cotton, 1917- 2008, of Baldwin, New York, and New Port Richey, FL.
