Forget Me Not


Forget Me Not is a Quilt for Alzheimer’s. Block are colorful and complicated in the center then get paler and simpler toward the edges – like memories.



Forget Me Not is a Quilt for a Cause – Alzheimer’s. The block are colorful and complicated in the center then get paler and simpler toward the edges – like memories. The quilt border is surrounded by forget-me-nots, the symbol of the Alzheimer’s.

The colors are also symbolic, especially during the Alzheimer’s walk. People carry purple flowers if they have lost someone to Alzheimer’s. They yellow flowers if they are a caregiver to someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Someone carrying a blue flower is living with Alzheimer’s. White flowers are symbols of hope for a cure.

This quilt has seven different blocks. Four of the blocks provide a secondary pattern of a forget-me-not.  Hoffman Watercolor fabrics are used in this design. The finished quilt measure 72-inches square.

A portion of the proceeds from this quilt pattern will go to the Alzheimer’s Association.

    Oh My!! I’ve never seen a better written block pattern!

    I was almost dreading getting it as I have done several “block of the month” programs that were so confusing I almost didn’t finish. Your diagrams, the way you give us ALL the cutting instructions up front so we are not having to pick up the same fabric a zillion times, the tips, all of it…just WOW!

    I’m so far behind with other projects and the load from the past year, but I am so inspired just by your excellence!
