Width: 8.5"   Length: 11.25"

Materials/Techniques: This colorful fish swims in a 'sea' of 1.5" pieced pastel squares. Black rayon thread appliques the fish to the background. The squares are edge quilted with a decorative stitch in gold sliver thread. The fish emits white sequins with a bead in the center bubbles. Gold rickrack separates the navy blue binding and the 'sea'.

Artist Statement: The background waited several months for just the right center of interest. When I saw the fish - I knew it was perfect. It added the happiness that recent advances in Alzheimer’s research have brought to many people. May this quilt help to hasten even more advances.
Ida Hansen
