Width: 8.5"   Length: 11.5"

Materials/Techniques: Made from scraps from previous quilts; hand tied.

Artist's Statement: I made this as a gift for a family gift exchange to be donated in the honor of my Nanny. The design reflects my Nanny's interest in sailing by depicting a yacht club. This is my first time designing a quilt for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.

Dedication: This quilt was made in honor of my Nanny and is being dedicated in the name of my cousin, Katie. Nanny was an avid sailor and loved the water. She got the whole family involved in sailing and even bought a little sailboat for her grandchildren to learn on. Even after developing Alzheimer's disease, she continued to enjoy living at the shore and sailing. This quilt is an attempt to capture the yacht club that was a second home to her for many years.

This quilt is displayed with a picture frame hook.

This quilt earned $15 for the AAQI.
