New Smyrna Sunset

New Smyrna Sunset is my Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt for the month of August.  I made it to commemorate the the sunsets that my mother-in-law enjoyed from her winter home in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.  She has dozens of sunset photographs in her albums, but sadly Alzheimer's has taken away all of her memories of the sunsets and her beautiful beach home.  It's my hope that this quilt will bring us one step closer to a cure because beautiful memories should never be forgotten!

Several readers have asked how they can purchase my Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts.  If you click on the AAQI tab near the top of this page it will take you to a list of the quilts that I have donated to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.  Click on each quilt title to see a photo of the quilt and it's status with the AAQI.  You can also go to

One of the absolutely most beautiful quilt you have done. It remind me of the sunsets I used to enjoy with my late brother in Key Largo. Bet Hills Creek Quilter will not find these colors boring.
