Materials/Techniques: Machine pieced, machine quilted.

Artist's Statement: As I watched my sisterís Alzheimerís disease progress, I saw her world shrink and her memories fade. Her life seemed to disintegrate right before my eyes.

This quilt was made in a similar fashion; it was pieced into a whole, quilted, cut exposing raw edges, then woven into a black sheer fabric, obscuring segments representing her life. The tapering at the bottom signifies her shrinking world.
Linda Devereaux

Dedication: To all those whose lives have been touched by dementia.

This quilt is displayed with a traditional sleeve.

This quilt earned $84.59 for the AAQI.
