Oh, I've been SO busy! With helping out family, doing my own quilting, and make a lot of really fun outside crafting, I've still managed to create my own small format art quilts for donation to the
Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI)
I think I have 8 of these (shown above) now registered, but they've yet to get their official portrait scanning..but will very soon! There are SO many quilts AAQI Quilts for Sale and lots more on the Quilts Waiting for Assignment page.
2013 is our last year of fundraising. On December 31, 2013 quilts on this page will be removed and will not be offered for sale. Read more here.
And check out all of my quilts here
I've earned $3,052.25 for Alzheimer's research funding !!!
Since I've registered 8 additional quilts, I've created and donated 55 so far, but as you can see from the photo, more will be on their way..just subtract the 8 already made from this bunch and that leaves....hmmm...I made have even more in the works now that I think about it!!!
And two of my 2010 quilts are on the Alzheimer's Illustrated: From Heartbreak to Hope traveling exhibit and will be a available for bidding by the end of the year.
My 8 quilts from this group, shown in photo above, have not yet been scanned for a photo should be on the website within the upcoming month. And then once, their number comes up, they are placed on the 'for sale' page.
(Thanks to Diane Petersmarck and Beth Hartford for all of their hard registration and web work for all of us who contribute to AAQI ! And of course, our wonderful, amazing leader, Ami Simms who works endlessly for all of us, wearing so many different hats and wrapped in so many different quilts all at once!!!)
My only two quilts currently available for purchase right now! Buy one before it's gone!!!
Buy the first one in memory of someone you loved that loved a flower garden and saw them as rich of a treasure as pearls. My little free pieced quilt is made of lovely fabrics and features a few pearl beads.
Buy the second one in honor of yourself...or anyone you know who would love the whimsy of this one! Aren't we all just "Imperfectly Perfect in Every Way" ;) Love this one so much!
All profits from the sale of this quilt go towards AAQI's donations for Alzheimer's research funding!!!! So, buy one or buy both and help fund Alzheimer's Research !
