The Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative has been receiving small format art quilts called Priority: Alzheimers Quilts since 2006. They convert those quilts to cash for Alzheimers research through monthly online auctions, online sales, and at International Quilt Festival in Houston each fall. They are supported by quilters all over the world.
The April online auction is currently underway. Have a look and see the nice variety up for sale, including the quilts shown here.
AAQI has taken in 9968 quilts at the time of this writing.
They are nearing a milestone of 10,000 quilts. If youd like to make and donate a quilt, read the guidelines here.
Most people know someone who has been affected by this illness.
