Materials/Techniques: Machine pieced, machine quilted.

Artist's Statement: It took a while for my family to realize that something was “not right” with my sister and it was difficult for us to decide if and when to step in and get involved and for my sister to allow us to help her.

As my sister Judy’s dementia progressed, it became increasingly difficult for her to make decisions for herself. Because of their geographical proximity, the majority of the decisions for care giving fell to my other sister Donna.

The quilt block known as “Sister’s Choice” was chosen to represent decisions that are made for those who are unable to do so for themselves. The tapered bottom is meant to depict the diminishing decisions those with dementia are able to make for themselves.

Dedication: To my sister Donna who took responsibility for overseeing our sister’s care and for making many tough choices.
