2535 - A Broken Heart
Joyce Saia
Beaumont, TX   USA

Width: 12"   Length: 8"

Materials/Techniques: Crazy pieced hearts, cotton with wool batting; machine pieced, machine quilted.

Artist's Statement: 5 crazy pieced hearts, the 6th heart has only the pieces scattered, shattered or could represent a person with Alzheimer's forgetting how to put the last one together.

b>Dedication: Fortunately no one close to me has suffered from Alzheimer's disease. However, I have witnessed two people at the gym I attend, deteriorating from the disease, trying to stay in shape but needing to be escorted and helped with every detail. It is sad to see people who have been so active become so helpless.

This quilt has a plain back.

This quilt earned $50 for the AAQI.
