14,827 - Hope

Width: 9" Length: 11.5"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: I paper pieced a star using one of Michael Miller's Fairy Frost fabrics and used cotton batiks for the wonky logs of a log cabin design. Machine quilting was added to further support the theme of loss of direction and confusion so sadly typical of Alzheimer's disease sufferers.

Artist Statement: The design was based on my perception of the confusion we see in Alzheimer's patients. I also wanted it to be like looking for the light at end of a tunnel, a hopeful and brighter future in the treatment and a cure for this horrible disease.
