Have You Ever?

Have you ever donated a Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative?  Have you ever gone back to the AAQI  website to see what became of your donation?  I did just that recently and found that my Becoming Scraps quilt had indeed sold and earned $55.00 for Alzheimer's research!  I was stunned!  This little 9"x12" quilt was made straight from my scrap basket, cost me nothing and only took a little bit of time to put together and yet it raised $55.00!  Think how much money we quilters could raise for Alzheimer's research if we all made just one little 9"x12" quilt from our scrap baskets and donated it to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative!  Earlier in the week, Lori of Humble Quilts challenged her readers to make and donate one Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt before the end of the year and I accepted that challenge.  It's the season for giving and I can't think of a better (or easier) gift to give...won't you join us?

I've made 11 quilts and raised more than $500. It's fun and a good cause.

I'm thrilled to see that the four quilts I made for AAQI have raised $254.67!! Little quilts do add up.
Great post!!

Great post Susan! I was excited to see one of mine sold in Houston. Thanks for the nudge to make more!
