    Finally, I found the picture of this quilt!!! It was on my laptop after all but I thought it was gone forever. I hope you can open this. If not Iíll have to print it out and scan it.

    It is a picture of a fundraiser quilt I made in 06í to benefit the Alzheimerís Association. My Dad & I are in front of the quilt. He was in the advanced stages of Alzheimerís when this picture was taken. This quilt raised $1276. A disappointment, but at least it was something. There were over 4000 pieces sewn into this pineapple quilt. It was my first paper piecing project. The background color is purple, and that is the Alzheimerís Associationís color. My original plan was for a turquoise background but my LQS didnít have enough turquoise. Hope you like it and can open it.

    WOW! Do you mean the Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk? I know how much meaning this has to you to do in her memory. I do this every year too, since 03 the year Dad was diagnosed. I joined the Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk committee in 04. It was a way to take the anger and sad feelings about what Alzheimer's was doing to my sweet father and use that energy towards something postive.

    EDIT: I didn't see the picture you put up for me when I first posted this - THANK YOU!!! ((((HUGS))))

    My heart goes out to you and your family. My MIL had Alzheimerís at the same time my Dad did. In case you are interested here is contact info for the Alzheimerís Association. 24/7 helpline ph# is 800-272-3900 (available in 152 languages and dialects.) Here is a link to their website http://www.alz.org/index.asp
