Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative

Peace by Melody Crust

The Priority quilts for December's Show and Silent auction have been posted on small quilters' favorite website.

Here are the quilts and facts about the Smackdown:
Hollis Chatelain won the championship belt. Her quilt, "Fading" sold at auction for $3,600.
Becky Goldsmith came in second. Her quilt "Mini Passion Flowers" sold at auction for $2,500.
Sue Nickels' quilt, "Golden Feathers" sold for $1,200.
John Flynn's quilt, "Red Hawk's Star" sold for $1,000.

ALL of these quilts brought in more money than any other AAQI quilt previously sold. In my book, they are ALL winners.

Melody, thanks for helping spread the word about the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative!

AND, thank you for donating "Peace" which is on the auction block this month for our "Slow & Silent" small format quilt auction.

For those who may not know, Melody also has a quilt traveling in "Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece."
