Width: 7.25" Length: 10.75"
Materials/Techniques: Reproduction fabrics with vintage buttons from my mother's button box. In my mother's world, everything was recycled. Shirts that could no longer be worn were turned into rags and sometimes made into rugs. Buttons moved on to another shirt.
Artist Statement: As with many Alzheimer's sufferers, my mother remembered her childhood better than more recent times. She loved the old reproduction fabrics. She would talk of sewing shirts (and underwear) for her brothers and father from prints like this.

Dedication: I learned a lot about my mother and the large family she came from while caring for her and quilting together. Caretaking is not always pleasant. May the caretakers find things to treasure among the caretaking tasks.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
