Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative Auction is ON NOW!!

You will not believe the great changes that have come to the AAQI Auction this month! There is a brand new auction hosting site that makes the process quick and easy! Your bids show up right away and you get a notification if you are outbid so that you can go back and bid again.

The auction is now automated and conducted in real time so it's easier to bid than ever. Please bid here: AAQI Quilt Auction. Hurry - the October auction ends on Sunday the 10th.

All profits fund Alzheimer's research.

Use this link to see a Smilebox slideshow of all the quilts.

Think ahead and purchase wonderful Christmas gifts for special friends. They will be pleased with the artwork and you'll have made a donation to a wonderful cause.

Come and see us in Houston at the International Quilt Festival from November 3rd through the 7th also - we're bringing over 1000 quilts to sell. We'll also be showcasing some amazing quilts from well known quilt artists such as Hollis Chatelain, Ricky Tims and John Flynn. See them here: World Series Quilt Challenge

And for all you quilters out there, we need more quilts to restock the shelves. It's easy to make a difference! Look here to see how to make a Priority Quilt. It's a great way to try a new technique or pattern or use up some of those UFO's!

This one of the two quilts that I made that will be for sale in Houston - the story behind them is in my August posts. They were fun to make!
