Materials/Techniques: Cotton quilting fabrics; machine quilted.

Artist's Statement: There were a few squares leftover after I made "Inside the Rabbit Hole" so I used them to create this Priority Quilt. Stars and stripes and wavy lines of quilting ~ cheerful, bright, positive, and hopeful.

In the words of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson: "We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true."

Here's to the dream that research will find a way to stop the spread of Alzheimer's!
