AAQI Quilt

The Celebration 2012 Quilt Challenge joined with the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI) to fight Alzheimer’s.  Participants made priority quilts (9" x 11") for the challenge which were then donated to AAQI.  The Challenge Quilts from Celebration 2012 are now available on the Alzheimer Art Quilt Initiative website. To view, bid and buy these beautiful quilts go to www.AlzQuilts.org. The quilts donated to AAQI by VCQ members are numbered 10251-10280.  My contribution is #10, 266 and can be found here.

Nickel Tote

Saturday was our August VCQ meeting held in Waynesboro, VA.  We had an enthusiastic group of ladies who participated in 4 classes and Come Quilt With Me.  I was in the Nickel Tote class, making a bag/tote/purse out of 5" charm squares.  With some pre-cutting of lining pieces and fusible fleece, we were able to get the various parts constructed, and I finished putting it together this afternoon.  One speedy classmate was able to get her's completely assembled in class.  Here are shots of the front and back of mine, made with batiks. Unfortunately, I was too busy sewing to think about taking pictures of others' projects!


The next meeting of Virginia Consortium of Quilters (VCQ) is November 10 in Martinsville, VA.  The night before (Friday, Nov. 9) will be the opening of a quilt show at the Piedmont Arts Center curated by Linda Fiedler.  This show has been held every 2 years for the last 10 years or so, and is always a highlight when we meet in Martinsville. Check out the VCQ website and our Facebook page.

New Hampshire Garden

On the day we visited friends at Squam Lake, we drove on to Holderness and stopped at an Artisan Center.  After a bit of shopping, we wandered the adjacent garden and I took these photos.  It was a lovely spot.
