Wow! My quilt, "Shhhh..." was the 10,000th quilt registered for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative! I just found out today when I got a call directly from Ami Simms. What a treat! When I picked up the phone I was really wondering why AAQI would be calling, even though I knew the 10,000 milestone was approaching. The quilt is already in the mail to Ami and there are hopes it will be able to get some extra publicity for the charity.
In fact, some of you will recognize this one as a piece that I made during the Patchwork Beasts class with Jude a couple of years ago. I finished it last year and put it in my shop, but I hadn't sold. When April 1 rolled around I realized I had nothing ready for AAQI this month, I decided to remove this one from the shop and registered it right away. Well, now it's on a whole new adventure! Ami is keen to see some local and national publicity, so I'll post here if any of that comes about.
