AAQI Slow and Silent Quilt Auction


The autographs of 40 quilting luminaries are featured on this quilt, including wonderful quilting stars like: Alex Anderson, Sandy Bonsib, Libby Lehman, Ricky Tims, Laura Wasilowski, and Ami Sims. Created by Kathy Kennedy-Dennis of Houston, Texas, it is called "Tricky Cards" for both the block design and the hand of cards once is delt when one faces the uncertain future of Alzheimer's and related dementias.

View it, bid on, it and check out the other signature quilts (including one by Barbara Bush) as they are auction companions of a host of lovely and creative quilts up for bidding and sale at the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.
