Alzheimer's Art Quilt Update

#11, 748
Donation #2
I just learned that the 2nd little bird quilt that I donated to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative will be flying to Houston this month!

It will  be one of the quilts offered for sale at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas, from November 1-4, 2012.
If you are lucky enough to be attending this major event, I hope you will stop by the AAQI booth in the exhibit area (on your right as you enter the hall)

The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative recently received its 12,000th donated quilt! Since the program began in 2006 it has raised more than $760,000 for research.  You can visit Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative for more information if you, too, would like to be part of finding a way to prevent/cure this disease.

Now I've made four little bird quilts - all measuring about 9" square; hand appliqued, embroidered and hand quilted. Here are the other three:

One for me!
 Here's a look at the original quilt which inspired these blocks - dated 1941
