Designer: Sierra Vista Art Program; Sierra Vista is an Alzheimer's community. I copied a drawing made in their art program and used that as a pattern for this quilt. I have received their permission.

Materials/Techniques: Machine appliqué.

Artist Statement: I made this quilt to honor the residents of Sierra Vista, an Alzheimer’s community in Santa Fe, NM. The focus at Sierra Vista is on today - enjoying what is happening now. I chose spring flowers for my quilt as a reminder of how much beauty we see in simple things every day. Even our elders who have experienced such loss of memory find beauty and joy in these everyday sights and are able to capture this in their art.

Dedication: To the residents of Sierra Vista Alzheimer's community.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $45 for the AAQI.
