Alzheimer\'s Quilt #2500This is Audrey Arno’s 8″ x 11.25″ Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilt called “Jessica’s House.” It is the 2,500th Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilt I have had the pleasure to receive. These very small quilts, named for the urgent need for Alzheimer’s funding and because they will go to their new home in a cardboard USPS Priority mailer, are the main fundraising arm of the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI). The AAQI was founded in 2006 to raise awareness and fund research.

Audrey pledged to raise $1,000 from quilts she donates to the AAQI. So far she’s donated 75 quilts and raised over $3,000. Congratulations Audrey for this incredible milestone! I am so grateful to you and to all the quilters who are threading their needles to make a difference in this world.
