Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative News

I received the following information from Ami Simms about the AAQI and want to share it with you. As I posted in this important announcement from AAQI, this will be the last year for this fund raising effort. Please check out the links and help if you possibly can.
1. The May auction quilts are up! AAQI is offering 27 beautiful quilts from the Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt project. The online auction starts on May 1st and runs to May 10th.

2. Participants in the AAQI's annual Celebrity Invitational Quilt Auction are confirmed for the November online auction. They are Charlotte Warr Andersen, Alex Anderson, Karen Kay Buckley, Linda Carlson, Pepper Cory, John Flynn, Diane Gaudynski, Renae Haddadin, Pat Holly, Libby Lehman, Patrick Lose, Marsha McCloskey, Sue Nickels, Barbara Shapel, Virginia & George Siciliano, Mary Sorensen, Ricky Tims, and Laura Wasilowski.

Whose quilt do you think will go for the highest amount?

3. The AAQI will return one last time to International Quilt Festival in Houston (Oct 30-Nov 3). They hope to bring 2,500 little quilts to sell and still need help reaching that goal. There is still time to make a quilt. The deadline isn't until August 1st. Details are here:

On another note, the Brown Thrasher returned yesterday and I was actually able to capture a few pictures.

Finally, a clear view.
As always, until next time,  I wish you peace and all good.
