many other ways to help (35 and counting) too! Even if you don't have time to make a quilt or money to buy one (though it's a fantastic way to purchase an original art piece for a very modest amount), you can still contribute simply by spreading the word about AAQI through Twitter, Facebook, your local quilt guild, and telling your friends and family.
Suzi used the Rosie's Rose block to make The Yellow Rose of Texas (8.5 x 8.5"), in tribute to her mother, Doris, who had Alzheimer's. Suzi hand-dyed the cotton fabrics for the rose, and, if you click on the image, you can see her teeny-tiny hand quilting stitches. The unusual red, white, and blue background adds so much to the Texas spirit of the quilt!
Many thanks to Suzi for sharing her beautiful work, and giving me an opportunity to promote this very worthwhile organization. You can read more about Suzi's quilt here (as I write, the quilt is still awaiting categorization for auction or sale, so the link may have changed by the time you read this -- I'll try to keep up with it).
Please feel free to use any Piece By Number pattern (whether purchased or freebie) to make a quilt for donation to AAQI, or any other charitable organization; you don't need to contact me for explicit permission. A mention of Piece By Number as design source is much appreciated, but not required.
