Designer: Marinerís Compass block from the EQ6 Block Library, digitized by Barb with Bernina artista software.
Materials/Techniques: Rayon thread machine embroidery of block; cotton background, backing, and binding; rickrack. Machine embroidered, machine quilted.
Artist's Statement: If only it were as simple as using a compass to find your way when confused by the effects of Alzheimerís. Iíve watched sadly as each of my parents lost their sense of direction in more ways than simple geography. My motherís journey is over, but my father has farther to go. Iím amused that even now he has a better sense of direction than I do!
Dedication: To those who help others find their way.
