"The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative® (www.AlzQuilts.org) is a national, grassroots charity whose mission is to raise awareness and fund research. The AAQI auctions and sells donated quilts, and sponsors a nationally touring exhibit of quilts about Alzheimer's. The AAQI has raised more than $773,000 since January 2006."
AAQI will also have a booth at the International Quilt Festival held in Houston, Texas each year. They have 2,000 quilts this year. Ten of my quilts will be attending market, so that's always exciting. If you've never made an AAQI quilt, I encourage you to give it a try. It's a great organization and the small format (9" x 12" or smaller) is easy to accomplish.
Half Rectangle Triangles intrigued me. I even copied the color scheme. I guess I wasn't feeling all that original that day. Plus I loved the red, yellow, gray combo. The blocks are pretty easy to put together and I'm mostly getting the points lined up.
