    Both my great-grandmother ("Mammaw") and my grandmother ("Granny") developed Alzheimers in their later years. It was heartbreaking to see them lose their abilities. I dearly hope that a cure can be found (and soon!) for this horrible disease.
    Love your little ones! Thanks for sharing them with your pictures.

They are so addictive that it probably would not take me long to do 250. Anyway, here is one more I finished 3/22, but am holding this to send in with a bunch more that I need to make. The butterfly applique is from DM's estate as I am trying to use up some of the things in her stash I find. It's vintage and 40+ years old. It's fun to just do a wonky flower with no planning. However, I thought my focal point were the flowers, but when I got done, all I saw was the great big heart between them.....lol....it pays to plan ahead sometimes. Here's the mini called Heart and Flowers.
    Just lovely! What a good way to use up scraps.

    N2scraplvr, I love your scrappy idea for a flower, sew creative!


    Moonrise: wow, thank you for sharing your little quilts. They are so well done.


    My Dad is 85 and is suffering from Alzheimer’s. He used to be able to remember such details about his growing up years. His 8 siblings relied on him for details and of course, I loved hearing about all of the details. Now that is all gone and he is more or less confined to a wheelchair or bed. We are thankful we still have him and that he remembers who Mom, his wife of 65 years, is.

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now am found, was blind, but now I see.

    Hi Linda! So sorry to hear about your dad. We hope a cure will be found soon for so many suffering from this dreadful disease. I don't know anyone with Alzheimers, but love helping to raise funds. My family was all lost to diabetes and heart disease. Lots of cures needed. We are glad you joined this challenge! Thank you so much for your kind words!

    Thanks everyone so much!! Everyone's minis are just so adorable!!

    I got permission from the designer! I plan to do three (one each in pink, purple, and yellow) This pic is from the original one I did for a friend who lost her mother. Do you think it will do well in those colors?

    DragonflyNana that is wonderful! Those 3 quilts will be great! Very clearly graphic, so they'll show up well in a small format picture on the website. These will be a great addition!
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!

    Dragonfly Nana, your little quilt is so pretty! I am still on the road and anxious now to get home to get started on these. I have been drawing different designs to while away the hours on the road...have 8 designs and names so far. Still 3 days from home. I haven't been this excited to work on something in a looooong time! Will be in Kalispell today and plan on doing a bit of fabric shopping tomorrow before heading home on Sunday. There are a couple of great quilt stores there.
