It was my pleasure to present a lecture today at the Trinity Valley Quilter's Guild in Ft. Worth, TX. Member Mary Kirwin came up with a fabulous idea for their 2008 quilt show challenge. Guild members are encouraged to create small donation quilts for the grass roots "Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts" project, which is dedicated to finding a cure for Alzheimer's Disease. The mini art quilts can be any theme, any construction style, with a 9" x 12" maximum size (so it fits into a USPS Priority Mailer without folding.) These quilts are auctioned during the first 10 days of each month.
It's part of the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative, organized by Ami Simms. To learn how you can help, please visit: www.AlzQuilts.org
