Alzheimer's Priority Quilts.....

Quilt County 2011
is including an exhibit of
Alzheimer's Priority Quilts

You can be a part of this Exhibit !

Please create a tiny quiltlet no larger than
9 x 12 inches.
(It must fit into a 9 x 12 Priority Mail Envelope)

Marcia Gilson will be thrilled to receive a tiny quilt from all of our members to be included in the Quilt County exhibit this summer.

" Sparrow "
8.5 x 11 inch

I am donating this quilt for display in Quilt County this year.
After the exhibit the quilts will be sent to Ami Simms
and auctioned off as

Your donation quilt will only take 2 or 3 hours of your time:

" Leftover Sunshine "
9 x 12 inches

I used scraps leftover on the cutting table to create this sunflower quilt.
The background is a leftover rail fence block.
The flower petals were leftover from my previous quilt.
It took no time at all to put this together...

" Glitter for Gramma "
9 x 12 inches

This is a wholecloth quiltlet.
It was leftover from a class I taught on free motion quilting and beading.
No need for it to clutter up my sewing room, so I sent it off to
Alzheimer's Priority Quilts.
It sold at auction for $45

" Glitter for Gramma 2 "
9 x 12 inches

Yes, another class sample that was laying around the sewing room.
It sold during the Alzheimer's Priority Quilt Auction
for $40

There is very little expense and time involved in creating a
Priority Quilt.
Think of it as an opportunity to play with your scraps,
practice some impromptu design work,
and have a quilt ready to display at Quilty County this summer!
