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,
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
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
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.
