Artist's Statement: As the colors of this quilt follow a zig zag path, so the minds of early stages of Alzheimer's sufferers often seem to be just a little OFF KILTER. The gold border signifies HOPE through research.

Dedication: This quilt is dedicated to my dentist and friend of many years, Frank. His intelligence and training certainly filled his brain and life to the fullest as seen in the saturated colors at the top of the quilt. In his last years, little by little his mind and intelligence became 'lighter' as shown in the progression of lightening colors. His life ended tragically in an automobile accident before becoming entirely blank.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $50 for the AAQI.
