Everything Turns To Black

Alzheimer's disease is much like a set of  watercolors.  In the beginning the colors are all clear and bright, but once the colors all start to run together they become muddy and then sooner or later everything turns to black.  The only difference is with Alzheimer's it's the memories of everything you know and love, not just the colors, that run together and are eventually lost.

Everything Turns To Black is my contribution to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative for the month of July.

Susan, this quilt is beautiful. Your description of Alzheimers shows your deep understanding of this horrid condition.
