Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabric square from Hawaii, cotton fabrics; machine quilting.

Artist's Statement: True love is not created by island paradises where the dreams of two people collide. True love is born in the everyday, where two hearts seek one another through the angst, the highs, the mundane, and the chaos of life. True love exists for two, despite the fact that there are millions of others crowding their world. True love is deepened by sorrow, raised by joy, and strengthened by life. These are the lessons of my uncle to a young bride. His greatest lesson to this bride, however, is that even the savagery of Alzheimer’s cannot steal true love from your heart completely, because true love can survive the unimaginable. Somewhere, somehow, deep within his soul, love calls out to him, and he remembers my aunt.
Peggy Trickler

Dedication: For my uncle, whose strength of true love in his heart has broken the unimaginable grip of Alzheimer’s, if just for a moment in time.
