Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics with stitch in the ditch quilting.

Artist Statement: I made this quilt to honor the caregivers of Alzheimer’s victims, who deal day to day with the shadows within a loved one's mind.

Dedication: This quilt is dedicated to the memory of my mother-in-law Mary Polzin, and her tireless caregiver, my father-in-law Weldon Polzin. Mary brought such happiness to those she knew, and we all miss her so very much! I never met a more devoted caregiver in my life than my father-in-law, Weldon. I'm so happy for this opportunity to do something that can help raise funds for research needed to find a cure for Alzheimer’s.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $15 for the AAQI.
