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. It is an original design.
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. My husband Mike was born many years after his youngest brother. When he was young and rambunctious around the house she had a certain way of saying Michael that always put a smile on her face. Even as he grew up and rallied up our boys in the house, she would still bellow his name. He would simply give her a smile and she would beam back at him. I miss her very much.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
