    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!

    Wow! They are lovely. My favorite is the third one. Not sure why, but I see two dragons facing each other. Great job!

    They are showing up here so much better than on the craftsy site. You just do such great imaginative work. I love the little pop of paint on some of the dots in the first one
