Materials/Techniques: Materials and techniques include 100% cotton fabric and batting, white patchwork background, machine applique and machine quilted. I washed and dried the quilt before adding the binding to give it an old-time crinkle appearance.

Artist Statement: I have wonderful memories of my mother and me playing jacks. We spent many hours sitting on our concrete porch playing together. I always loved playing with her - because I could beat her!

Dedication: This little quilt is dedicated to my mother, Doris Hays, a wonderful educator, writer, storyteller and the "very best grandmother." She was taken from us too early by Alzheimer's. It was extremely difficult to watch her brilliant mind slip away.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $50 for the AAQI.
