I think many of us have family or loved ones that have been touched by Alzheimer’s or dementia – my family has and in the past I’ve supported the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative with a couple purchases but I’ve never made a quilt to donate.
Having received a comment from Michele on one of my postcards and seeing the AAQI exhibit at the Mid Atlantic Quilt show, I’ve been thinking about doing a small quilt for them … Right now it’s just a drawing and I don’t know if I can actually execute it and donate it but I drew out an idea today. I’m going to try to use my interest in embroidery and fused appliqué that you’ve seen in my postcards in a larger piece the size of a Priority Quilt.
EDIT: OOPS, no spell check in my drawing program – I will hopefully spell STRENGTH right in the actual piece!!
Before starting … I need need to catch up a bit. Some quilts to be bound, piecing to finish up, and it’s time to get our tax stuff together for the accountant. UGH!
