Designer: Susan Allen, The Quilt Asylum Quilt Sampler, Spring/Summer 2006, used with written permission.

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics, pieced and appliquéd; hand quilted with variegated Weeks Dye Works thread.

Artist Statement: To fulfill my $1000 Promise, I chose a modern color combination of greens and browns. While making it, I was listening to CD of Still Alice, in which Lisa Genova's character describes her Alzheimer's disease as jumbling her thoughts like Green Eggs and Ham. The title by the famous Dr. Seuss fit the quilt in body and spirit.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
