Raffle Quilt Supports AAQI

Jannett Caldwell’s quilt, “Losing My Mind A Piece At A Time” which appears on pages 34-35 of Alzheimer’s: Forgetting Piece by Piece. She helped make another quilt pictured here.

Shirley Pierce pieced the blocks and Jannett set them together and, with some members of the Kennet High School graduating class of 1963, quilted it.

The quilt was made as a “class project” to honor their teachers, some of whom have/had Alzheimer’s.

Shirley and Jannett took the quilt and sold tickets at an outdoor Farmer’s Market in Kennet Square, PA and at a craft show in Media, PA. Most of the people  knew someone with Alzheimer’s and were happy to buy tickets.  Some of their classmates made outright donations and most bought tickets. The Kennet High School Class of 1963 is sending $1,567 to the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative.

What a beautiful expression of gratitude and generosity. Quilters ROCK!
