Width: 8.75" Length: 11.5"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: This quilt is a whole cloth cotton quilt with the design drawn and dyed with Fabrico Markers. It is heavily quilted, with some trapunto to bring out the horse’s features. I’ve also added some prairie points for some additional splash.

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 was from Georgia and her family had traditions. One of these was Grandma Lawrence’s biscuits. I have tried to figure out a recipe from a pinch of this and a grab of that, but have given up and just enjoyed watching her. She would tell me that she could never get these right and that she had been doing them for over 50 years. On that day, James (her husband) heard this and whispered in her ear “they are better than my mother’s.” She beamed and kept on cooking with a smile on her face. I miss her very much.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $100 for the AAQI.
