Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative

COON - 9" x 12"


FANTASY FLOWER - 9" x 12"


I made these two small quilts for the AAQI monthly auction.  If you are not familiar with AAQI, please visit the website at http://www.alzquilts.org.  The organization has raised a substantial amount of money for research on Alzheimer's disease primarily through the sale of small quilts.  The founder, Ami Simms, saw first-hand the devastating effects of this disease with her mother.  Although her mother has passed on, Ami has remained faithful to this cause.

My sister has this disease and I have watched it destroy her day by day.  I hope you will take a moment to look at the little quilts and consider making a bid or participating by making one of the auction quilts yourself.

Thanks for looking!

My mother had dementia, so I know firsthand what happens to our loved ones. This is a worthy cause. Your small quilts are wonderful.
