Artist Statement: My dad developed Alzheimer's when he was in his late sixties; he lived to the age of 75. His personality changed drastically--he was nothing like the strong, fun-loving, successful man he had once been. I made this quilt to help raise money to find cures for a heart-breaking disease and to help me reflect on my "real" dad.
Dedication: This quilt is dedicated to my dad, Charlie, who loved dogs--especially his hunting dog, Brownie.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $75 for AAQI.
