    3 quilts and a horse

    The first quilt is a mini quilt, 9" x 9" that I donated to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. http://www.alzquilts.org/ It sold at auction for $146 and was made in memory of my Grandfather who had Alzheimer's.

    The second mini quilt is 8" x 12" and was sold by the AAQI for $70. It was made in memory of my mother who also had Alzheimer's. It was rewarding to contribute to Alzheimer's research.

    The third quilt was the most fun to make because of all the different blocks. The pattern is Four Star Generals by Yellow Creek Quilt Designs. I thought the civil war statue in our town was the perfect place to display this civil war quilt.

    These are just stunning. I had to log on to comment. Just think the top one is gorgeous and so much work as a miniature. And what a great way to display a quilt on the horse!!!

    These are lovely and for such a great cause. Thank you for your contributions. Really loving the quilt on the horse.

    Love your quilts. And I love the photo of your quilt on the horse. In my city we have a statue called "The Mill Girl" to represent all the young ladies who worked in the Amoskeag Mill factories. I've often thought of taking a photo of her with a quilt since the mills turned out fabrics for years and years.

    The mini's are lovely and so kind of you to make them and donate the $. The large quilt is stunning! You did an amazing job on that and I agree - the horse was the most perfect place to display it

    That Civil War quilt is wonderful--and it is great on the horse--he looks a little skittish about it though!
