Blanketeers Raise over $200 for Alzheimer's Research!!!

Remember these six little beauties?  The Blanketeers donated these mini quilts to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative earlier this year, and five of them sold for over $200!  That's right, $207.43 was raised for Alzheimer's research, in the hopes of finding a cure for that horrible disease, which has devastated so many of our families.

The only remaining available quilt is Waltz of the Flowers (lower right) which can be purchased for $7.50 from AAQI.  Sadly the AAQI program is ending on 12/31/13, so act quickly if you want to make a donation to Alzheimer's research, and own this lovely hand-appliqued wall hanging.

how good is that to have raised the money for such a good cause, lets us pray they can find a cure soon as it is such a devastating thing to happen both to the patient and also to the relatives to see their dear relative in a far away place.

That has been a great project for the Alzheimer Association. I have a friend whose mother is in an assisted living center. There is an alzheimer wing at the same center and she donates quilts to the center. The residents like to have something to fiddle with. I am helping her out by giving her both quilts and quilt tops. It has been a rewarding year.
