This is the fourth year an elite group of quilters has donated quilts to the AAQI for an online auction in November, National Alzheimer's Awareness Month. Last year's auction raised more than $14,000 for the national charity that sells donated quilts to fund Alzheimer's research. The auction is open to the public.

I can't believe it's July and the "heat is on". Maybe if I'm trapped in the house because it's too hot out, I'll get more done? Doubtful~ Anyway, I was just watching Tom Russell on The Quilt Show and now have lots MORE ideas floating around in my head that I may never have time to play with, but it was a very interesting show! But then I went into the Free Shows tab and re-watched Ami Simm's show about the AAQI. I was actually in the Boulder, CO studio that day and have since watched the show on TQS, but this time I paid closer attention to the After Show slideshow. I found three shots of quilts I gathered names on and quilted. I quilted the words faith, hope and love. AND (most precious) a picture of me and my Dad which I had forgotten was in that show.
