Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative Display


On Saturday my friend, Pam picked me up and off we went to Bloomington, Indiana, to the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show.  The first thing we saw after the teacher's quilts displayed in the downstairs lobby was a huge display of quilts made by Indiana quilt and sewing guilds to benefit the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.

Here are just a few of my favorites that were on display.  Keep in mind that these quilts are no larger than 9" X 12".  The workmanship in these quilts is amazing.

Sorry there was not a list of the quilt makers, and my photography isn't good enough in most cases to read the name.

These hexagons were made from old shirts.



Laurel Burch fabric...maybe a panel used in this one.


Sort of a four patch done like a stack and whack.


A tiny storm at sea.


Cats from a panel.


Scrappy four patch.


The centers of these stars look like tiny stack 'n whack blocks.


This one was gorgeous with ribbon embroidery, ruching and beading.


Interesting pinwheels and look at the fussy cut flowers in the centers of the churn dash blocks.


Love these tiny log cabins and the setting.


More log cabins.  Interesting machine quilting.


This bird looks like he was made with fabric made from tiny scrap pieces.



This was amazing made with thread play.  Very creative.


The sashing on this one was perfect. 


A tiny twister.  I love the background with all the pins.



Here you can see the number of quilts on display.  I think there were more than 200.






It's been awhile since I posted.  I've been doing some sewing, but mostly I've been making pillowcases and some little dresses to donate to different charities supported by our quilt guild and church.

And, I've been babysitting with this little guy quite a bit the last two weeks.  Daniel will be a year old in 10 days.  



Thanks for visiting, and I promise it won't be so long between posts!
