Alzheimer's Challenge

                                    

 

 

 

 

          Make a mini quilt to

        Benefit Alzheimer's research!!!

You have 2 months, until July 1,

hoping that will give everyone plenty of time.

Quilts must be 9" by 12" or smaller, not 1/4 " larger! 

 

You can use the Alzheimer's theme or not,

but must

 

have 3 layers, back, batting, and top.

 

  If you use a design from a pattern,

 

magazine, or etc, you must have the

 

designer's permission in writing.  (I use

 

e-mail to ask permission, and have

 

gotten it easily if the pattern is not too old.)

 

This quilt will not be yours, it will be

 

registered to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt

 

Initiative and will be sold for money for

 

research into a cure

.

See more information by Googling

 

Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.  If we

 

all make a quilt, we can register our

 

group under those groups who have

 

completed a challenge.

 

 

I can be a Quilt Registration Goddess if

 

you wish.  But do not register until

 

after July 1

Register only when you are ready to send.

 

Please e-mail me at [email protected]

 

with a photo and the measurements of

 

your quilt when you have it

 

completed.  We can vote in our group

 

on our favorite just for fun and i will

 

send a prize to the winner.  But we will

 

all be winners if we help find a cure.

 

  Scientific research is the only way we

 

can conquer Alzheimer's and research

 

costs money.  So far this organization

 

has raised $713,000 by selling mini

 

quilts online!!!

 

 

You can use any theme, and put fast

 

finish triangles on the back for easy

 

hanging.  Fold a 3 or 31/2" square on

 

the diagonal and put in the top corners

 

before binding.

 

If you use the pillowcase method, then

 

you have to stitch around the triangles on all sides.

 

 

I propose that we all help.  I have

 

rambled on forever here, but please

 

ask questions and do read the

 

information online about making a quilt

 

and seeing what others have done

 

 

Thanks for taking on this challenge.
