When I Grow Up speaks to the idea of possibilities and hope. I remember thinking throughout my growing years, "When I grow up, I want to be just like her." The "her" could be "him." It could represent someone who is admired, maybe a mother, a parent, a teacher or a friend. This quilt was designed around the hope of finding a cure for Alzheimer's disease in my lifetime. The blue bird looks up to the blue rose and sings: "When I grow up, I hope you'll remember me." Fannie NarteDedication:
To all who hope to be remembered when they grow up.
