Width: 8.75"   Length: 11.75"

Materials/Techniques: "Ugly fabric" (for an ugly disease); applique, machine quilted.

Artist Statement: "FanAnna" is a tribute quilt to my amazing grandmother, Anna Jordan, who was a dominant figure in my quilting development. She had Alzheimer's disease when she died at 95 years of age. One of our shared favorite block designs was the fan, which in this piece symbolizes her later dubious choices in fabric, deterioration in workmanship, and eventually her gradual departure from reality to a detached and incomplete haze.
