Artist Statement: I designed this quilt from a photograph of my dad and me. It was a rarely seen photo, lost in one of the many photo albums we have, but as I was flipping through the pages it jumped out at me. I love our long shadows, and the way I’m turned slightly towards the camera, looking back at how far we’d gone. As children, our parents lead the way and provide guidance as we move through life’s new experiences. There comes a time when those roles reverse. We still walk together, but I know more often now I will be the one showing him the way.
Dedication: For my dad, and for everyone who has a parent with Alzheimer’s.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
