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.
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.
