The June auction for the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative includes two of my small quilts. This incredible volunteer organization has raised more than $916,000 for Alzheimer’s research since January 2006! AAQI will stop its fundraising efforts at the end of this year, and has a goal of raising at least $1,000,000 before then, and this is one of the last auctions they’ll be having.
Both my parents died from Alzheimer’s, and I wrote a bit about why I make quilts for AAQI in this blog post and also this post.
Below is Watercolor Coneflowers, one of the quilts up for auction in June. I wrote about creating this quilt in this earlier blog post. It measures approximately 9 inches by 12 inches.
Below is Three Daffodils which I wrote about making in this post. It measures about 9 by 9.5 inches.
Marion and Charles Schroeder, 1951:
You can see many of the quilts I’ve made for AAQI here or on the AAQI web site.
Every stage of life is interesting, even this one.

I found some of your lovely work on Spoonflower this morning. I design on there too. Then I clicked to your website and found your amazing work and tutorials.
My sister did a quilt for this organization a few years ago. Your quilts are beautiful.
So lovely to meet you.
