Designer: Louise Lopinto Hutchison, Quilters Newsletter Magazine, page 48, Jan/Feb 2006. Used with written permission.

Materials/Techniques: Commercial fabric; machine pieced, hand embroidery.

Artist's Statement: I pieced this block using freezer paper templates instead of paper piecing. Selecting all of the fabric was great fun. I added some hand embroidery accents. If only an apple a day would keep Alzheimer's away.

Dedication: When I contacted Louise for permission to use her pattern she shared the fact that she lost her mother in December 2010 after a 10 year battle with Alzheimer's. This quilt is dedicated in memory of her mother.
