Barbara Walton
Cupertino, CA USA

Width: 9" Length: 10"

Materials/Techniques: Remnants of cotton sateen fabric from FabMo.org. Fussy cut 1 inch squares to select roses for the heart, 1/8" inner border, original fabric border and pieced backing, machine stitched and quilted.

Artist Statement: Gradually losing a family member to Alzheimer's feels like an ever-growing hole in your heart. My cousin says of her husband with early-stage Alzheimer's, I've lost my best friend; I'm not a wife, I'm a mom looking after him.

Dedication: My aunt (and godmother) was a nurse, as was my mom. She enjoyed china teacups, especially one with pretty pink roses.
