Artist Statement: Alzheimer’s has touched our family. We lost someone very precious to us… to me. Her family name was Grandma Anne. To me, she was my mother-in-law and so very special. I hope this will help aide in the fight, so that others don’t lose their special someone to Alzheimer’s.
Dedication: This quilt is dedicated to Grandma Anne. She loved baseball. One day while watching a Braves game on her TV in her recliner, she was quite upset because her team wasn’t playing well. She threw up her hands and said “that’s it, I’m not watching anymore” then covered her eyes with her hands. In a few moments something exciting happened in the game and I noticed small slits between her fingers, so she could see. She stayed like this for about 15 minutes. I miss her very much.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
