Materials/Techniques: This little quilt began life as a heart shaped sachet pillow found at an Antiques Shop in Chappell Hill, TX. After dismantling, I appliquéd the front onto white bleached muslin and proceeded to hand stitch hundreds and hundreds of beads; silver, red, hot pink, pink, white and clear. I also hand applied silver bugle beads, pink prismed biconals and soft pink satin ribbon. I love the gradation of the bead colors at each of the 16 lace points of the hearts outer edge.

Artist Statement: I made this quilt to give honor to my mother. She is the caregiver for my stepfather, Brian, who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
