Width: 9"   Length: 11"

Materials/Techniques: 100% cotton fabrics and threads were used to create this machine quilted fused appliqué piece.

Artist's Statement: I enjoyed working on this piece at a weekend quilt retreat; it’s always a warm feeling to know that I am creatively helping to find a solution to a terrible disease. Also, it’s a great way to use of leftover pieces from other projects – the “greenness” of quilting continues!

Dedication: In memory of my Grandma – in hopes that no one else’s loved ones live with this disease. What can be worse that a loved one that no longer recognizes you? Although it has been years since she passed, I continue to count blessings for the few moments during that last visit I shared with her where she actually recognized me.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $45.00 for the AAQI.
