Village Piecemakers- Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative Continued

Yesterday, Nancy McGrew and I were featured in Ami Simm's Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative update blog. Click here to read the article. The post is called "Quilters Give in Many Ways".

The piece pictured here is from the Priority Quilt Workshop. I taught the students how to make this background and thread paint these cute flowers.

Since the participants are each donating their workshop pieces, I thought it would be fitting for me to donate this class sample.

So today, Lazy Daisies will be shipped to Diane Petersmarck, the dedicated volunteer that handles the Priority Quilts.

It is number #7302  if you wish to watch for it come up for sale or auction. I am getting very close to my $1000 promise. Perhaps this is the piece that will reach my goal!

I have appreciated the opportunity to interact with many of Ami's volunteers. Fannie Narte, an accomplished quilter, worked on the blog article. A big thanks to Fannie.

Lisa, thanks for generously giving of your time and talents to those around you, the quilters at Village Piecemakers and especially for supporting the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative through your own quilt donations, lectures and workshops. You're the BEST!!! I'm glad our paths crossed. Continued success in all you do. Thank you.
