Now, that the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative is a beautiful memory of thousands of quilters, multiple thousands of small format art quilts, and a wonderful founder, president, and inspirational leader Ami Simms, it's time to put this blog back to work!
So, I am now using this blog as my Alzheimer's Awareness Inspirational Quilting backup blog for my own ongoing work for raising Alzheimer's Awareness and quilting, teaching, and hopefully inspiring others, as I have with my original donation of lap quilts for those in care homes, to creating small format art quilts for donation to Ami Simm's "Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative" and now by creating, teaching, donating, and selling my Fidget Quilt Projects to spread awareness and my caring energies of 'heart and hands' to others.
With Heart and Hands
All original posts are on my own personal and primary blog. And as it nears 8 million reader views, it is finally hitting me that in my own little way, not a big, huge wonderful way like Ami, but my own simple Michele Bilyeu way, I am making a difference.
My Fidget Quilts blog posts have earned me a spot at the top of the search engines and I am being told that I have inspired church groups, girl scout and other civic minded community groups, nursing homes, etc. to create these small lap quilts for others.
Nothing could please me more than to know that somehow all of this hard, hard work with my blogs and blogging has made a difference.
Thank you for coming to visit, for reading, and for going back into your own sewing rooms, homes, and communities to do good!!!
