Totally Awesome!

The sales have all been totaled and it's official, the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative sold 1,141 Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts during International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX, raising $62,000 for Alzheimer's research during the four and a half day quilt show.  Yes, that was one thousand one hundred forty-one little quilts that sold for a total of sixty-two THOUSAND dollars...record sales for the AAQI at the Houston show!  Those are some totally awesome totals!

I would also imagine those numbers represent the amount of people now aware and/or are affected by the disease through a relative. It's nice to know quilters can achieve big things in a small way. Congratulations goes to you also for helping with this project.
