Artist's Statement: My mother, Jessie Mae Taylor Plapp, was a nurse and recognized her early Alzheimer's symptoms even before we did. Her sister, Mildred Folkerts, died of Alzheimer's in 1988. We all hoped and prayed that she was wrong but we lost her to this dreadful disease in 2001.

Both Mother and Aunt Mildred were quilters and I know they would be so proud of the work we are all doing to find a cure.

Dedication: To Jessie Mae Taylor 1914 - 2001.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $85 for the AAQI.
