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.
