Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics and batting, metallic and trilobal polyester threads and hot fix Swarovski Crystals were used in this quilt. It was machine quilted entirely freehand, without any marking.

Artist Statement: This quilt was made in memory of my grandmother and her sisters, victims of dementia, and in response to SewCalGal's FMQ Challenge. Its faded colors that mingle with each other represent the beautiful memories that faded so quickly; the crystals represent the sparks of creativity my grandmother passed on to me through her paintings, ceramics, and example.

Dedication: Dedicated to my grandmother and her son, my father, who instilled in me a love of art and a passion to create.
