Artist Statement: I wanted to make a quilt for friends or family of an Alzheimer's patient. The woman depicted on the quilt could be the patient dreaming or the loved one of the patient dreaming of the past. It could also depict your memories of the patient as a beautiful young lady dressed elegantly or make up your own story. I wanted to be a part of that story, in a small way, so I made this quilt.
