(More) The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI)

In my last post I wrote about the Friday Night Quilters
and how for our birthdays we were doing something different
this year.

Mary asked that we make little art quilts for
the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.
All of these quilts are 9" x 13" in size.

Here are some of the quilts she received:

This one is mine.....finally finished.......

Dolly used some of the leftover from the quilt
she made for her brother to make this mini quilt.
I love the turquoise binding inset.

Another quilt by Dolly

Kathy made this sweet quilt and
gave it some sparkle using crystals.

Joanne really went all out with this one.
You are looking at pieced triangles folks.......
NOT a printed piece of fabric!
and the writing around the border is beautiful!
Another Joanne masterpiece!

Our lady Linda made these lovely leaves.
The image came from a "Shaw" carpet ad in a magazine.It symbolizes the loving family tree-the leaves on the treerepresent healthy family members. The leaves that have fallen represent those who have fallen to Alzheimer's.

I finished quilting Judy's quilt this week.

And another t-shirt quilt for Barbara.
This one is for her grandson Jonathan.
There is a disturbing story that goes along with
this above quilt............tune in tomorrow to get the scoop!
