Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabric, cotton batting and cotton thread, machine pieced and machine quilted.

Artist Statement: This quilt is dedicated to the mother of a long-time friend - Don Van Alstyne - who I have known for about 25 years. When he told me that his mother was suffering from Alzheimer's how could I NOT make a quilt in her honor? I only regret that I didn't get it made before she passed.

Dedication: For Nora Van Alstyne - she loved to bake pies and sold Avon in Willis, Texas for 40 years, giving her the nickname "Avon Lady of Willis". Her favorite color was red. She passed in December, 2010 and will be deeply missed.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $40 for the AAQI.
