Artist Statement: At a quilt show in Massachusetts I saw the Alzheimer’s exhibit. Clearly the volunteers were very dedicated. I have had relatives and dear friends who suffered Alzheimer’s prior to their deaths. That's why this seemed like a great way to support a worthwhile cause. I liked the way the program was served by volunteers and that the money raised isn't wasted on high salaries for executive compensation! This was my inspiration and I really enjoyed making the small quilts - every stitch had meaning.
Dedication: This quilt is dedicated to a dear friend - Nancy Raymond. Nancy died recently and is much missed. All her life she was a loving and fun friend and her smiles and hugs cannot be replaced.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
