I have a new camera and spent the day in Grand Rapids at the AQS show. The show has fabulous quilts and it also has a wonderful display for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. There were thousands of names on the purple and lavender and eggplant panels. Thousands. They were interspersed with small, lovely AAQI quilts. The two that I photographed below were made by Michelle, a friend from the Liberated Quilters on-line group. She has lost many relatives to Alzheimers and has been making these little quilts to raise money for research. I have made a few and have two more in the works,
but there is still lots to be done. Please check out www.alzquilts.org to see how you can help too. You should be able to click on the photos to enlarge them.
