Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative: AAQI August Auction

The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Association August Auction is now open with some unique quilts this month and every month from the first day to the tenth. For my Liberated Quilting Challenge latest quilts check out my posts here: AAQI Liberated Challenge. To join in our fun go to our AAQI web page here: AAQI Liberated Quilters Group Challenge.

For this post (previously dated), the art quilt above is discussed here:

While this August 2010 quilt auction has broken all first day bidding records with $1,425 in less than 12 hours! The auction continues until 10pm EDT, August 10th but additional auctions are held from the 1st to the 10th of each and every month.

As special features, check out this beautiful 5,000th quilt (shown above) created by Marlene Woodfield. You can also find a picnic quilt designed by the Vera Bradley Design Team complete with a matching tote bag for sale, and a Debbie Mumm quilt, as well!

Bid early, and bid well, each and every month. Then keep the ball rolling by continuing to bid on some truly lovely quilts. Check them all out and see if yours is up on the auction block this month, or buy one for a gift for yourself, or for a friend.

Support Ami Simm's and her dedicated band of volunteers as we try to fund research with the hope of finding a cure for this devastating disease!
