Artist Statement: Contemplating the ravages of Alzheimer’s as I stitched; I wondered … would I forget the delight and play of colors? This "a stitch in time" quilt is an offering of hope for an Alzheimer’s cure. May we all continue to appreciate the exuberance and mystery of color-play and rejoice in gratitude. We pray for those who may have forgotten.
