2013 and Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative

2013 will be the final year for the The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. There is a high possibility that fundraising for this grass roots organization will reach the $1,000,000 mark this year. I think it is amazing and it happened because one lovely lady had a vision of helping to find a cure for this terrible disease.
This photo speaks volumes.

To get the full update with final dates you can check out this page.

Here are three more quilts waiting for their registration numbers. I quilted and bound these on my trip.

I have made the $1000 promise which does not include the quilts Kathie makes and I finish. I figure I'll have 6 more quilts to make to reach that personal goal. I hope you'll support me buy purchasing my quilts.
As usual, I will be sure to let you know when mine come up for sale.

Thanks you Ami for all your hard work and love put into AAQI!!

  6. It is a wonderful thing for a wonderful cause and something I would like to do in the future.
    I like the idea of making small quilts to donate for a charity.
