I tried to think how the progress of Alzheimer's might be viewed by the victim, so I wrote a poem (on the back of the quilt), then designed the spiraling flying geese depicting the progression of the loss experienced (I'm told) by the disease. The background also, goes from light to dark, echoing the same trauma.
