$1,000.00 Pledge

I did it!  I am so pleased with myself, lol.  When I first started making quilts for Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI), I joined the $1,000 Promise - that I would keep making these little quilts until mine had raised $1,000.00 for Alzheimer's research.  With the last batch of quilts that went to the Houston quilt show selling, I reached my goal!  I wasn't sure I would be able to since it is the last year of fundraising by this great organization.   Here is a review of the quilts I made for AAQI = the ones that are blacked out are where I used a commercial piece of cross stitch without getting permission for the copyright.  Okay to sell, but not to show online.

Total raised so far: $1,062.63

So, as of now, I have two quilts left to sell.  Rust & Glitz has not sold yet because no one else seems to love it as much as I did - I may just have to buy it back!  The other one is the first quilt I made for AAQI and it was part of the travelling exhibit and is being sold next month in the auction.  Here's another look at that one, called "forget-Me-Not".

So, now I am done patting myself on the shoulder, I am back home after seven months of working away so it is about time I get back to blogging.  Talk to you again soon!

Yea for you! I'm sure there are many happy owners of your beautiful creations. I think my total for 10 donated quilts was about $600. I am pleased as punch with that!

Hope all those $$$ can help find a cure!
