Materials/Techniques: The winter theme of Valentine's Day inspired this quilt which features a heart within a heart and a heart within a heart. The background is a red tone and tone roses print, the outer heart is gold mesh over the print, the center heart is solid red silky rayon, and the inner heart is crinkled lame'. Each heart is edged with gold metallic rickrack. LUV U is stitched in large letters above the heart. A single gold jewel embellishes the top heart.

Artist Statement: Even as people lose their mental abilities, their need for love continues until the end of life. This quilt reminds family and friends to continue to show love, or it could remind the patient that he/she is still loved.
