    Just wanted to share these that I don't think I shared before. I make miniature quilts and donate them to Alzheimers research through the Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative.

    I'm working on fulfilling my $1,000 promise to them. What that means (for those of you who don't know) is that I have pledged to make enough miniature quilts, all 9x12 or smaller, until I have sold at least $1,000 worth. So far, my total is a bit less than $200, but that's ok! I have 5 more ready to be sent off for donation.

    What a wonderful, yet lofty goal. My mother had Alzheimers when she passed away in November, so I know the devastation it does. Thank you on behalf of the many patients who can't say it themselves. It's because of initiatives like this that we have research and medicines for patients. I'll have to join you in making small quilts in mom's memory for AAQI. This is just the push I need to get started.

    Your quilts are great. I love the talking heads one. What a great goal! This disease is hitting so many families as they watch their loved ones fade away.
    Last year some of the doll quilt swappers as a group participated in a donation, and the quilts went to Houston for the quilt show. I hope to send quilts again (I did 2)this year. Here's a thread I started about them.

    thanks so much for your comments! Some of them were the first ones I've ever made.

    I'm just glad that I can help out a worthy cause! And use up my scrap fabrics in the process!
