    Three Little Quilts for AAQI

    These are 3 quilts little 9" x 12" quilts I plan to donate to AAQI (Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative). The first is a sample piece I made in a Craftsy class and decided to bind and finish for AAQI, and the other two I made specifically for AAQI. (After all I couldn't send just one lonely little quilt!) I used some Shiva Paint Stics to highlight the quilting on these and some little crystals on one of them too.

    (((AZWENDY)))) I know the Alzheimers thing is Ami Simms pet project for years.... and the link is www.AlzQuilts.org... i searched for *size* on that site, as I cant remember the max size... the max size is: ”. By creating mini art quilts in any theme with a maximum size of just 9" x 12" (so that it fits a USPS Priority Mailer without folding.. aha... Ami is a wonderful person, and its one of those *charities* that I feel comfortable about when she says ALL the proceeds go to the charity, that they DO. Clicking on the wonderful do-able size art quilts on that site is just so much fun... and I LOVE YOUR 3 QUILTS... Your quilting is wonderful... thanks so much for posting...

    Yes, I was very careful to check out their size and other requirements to make sure to make pieces they could use!
