AAQI quilts

One last time, the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative is taking our quilts to the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas.  The AAQI will be presenting over 2000 little art quilts to sell, to raise money for Alzheimer's disease research.

For the third year, I am honored to have my quilts among those 2469 quilts being exhibited and sold in Houston.

The AAQI is hoping to reach it's $1,000,000 fundraising goal by the end of 2013. I believe the AAQI project has been a wonderful success. The amazing idea of one creative woman; and a lot of people working together, each doing just a little, but together, doing great things.

It is mind-blowing how many quilters, from all over the world, have made quilts for the AAQI.  It is very sad to realize, that all of us, have been touched by this terrible disease.

Not all will be in Houston. There are still many beautiful quilts for sale on-line.   The AAQI campaign/project will be ending at the end of 2013, so you only have twelve weeks left to purchase a beautiful piece of fabric art and support Alzheimer's disease research.

Here is a little quilt eye-candy. It is one Grandmother's Flower Garden block from a quilt on which I am currently working. It is all hand sewn. Don't you just love the Kaffe prints too?!
