Width: 7"   Length: 7"

Materials/Techniques: Batik scraps, beads, embellishments.

Artist's Statement: Family members have suffered from Alzheimerís Disease. I use scraps , assembling them to make something whole and beautiful again, wishing the whole time, I could make them whole again. I have ALS now so these are my last effortsÖMy mind is fine but my body has failed me. It is ironic that Alzheimerís robs the mind of itís function while leaving the body intact while ALS robs the body of its function while leaving the mind intact.

Dedication: In memory of my Father and my Mother-in-Law.

This quilt is displayed with a hanging ring.
