TQS/AAQI Challenge 2012

OK quilters! This quilter is issuing a challenge!
The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI) is a national charity that sells small donated quilts to fund Alzheimer's research. We’ve seen Alex, Ricky, Libby, Sue, Hollis, Caryl, John, and other fabulous quilters do it. We can do it too! Let’s jump in and do some serious damage. I mean quilting.

The number I have in mind is 1,000 in 1 year. Make them, buy them, or both. Every quilt donation, every quilt sale counts. I think the TQS community could really shake things up! (In a good way!)

It’s me, Clara Lawrence, the Sorting Queen. Come join in and lets do some stitching together. (Hey, there's an idea: build your mini-quilts from left-over half-square triangles and strips!)

With the triangle exchange I was blown away by all the huge hearts and how quickly so many came to other quilters aid. I’m keeping this short. Too much data to share. Come see for yourself. You know a lot of us have more than one project at a time. It is a rare few (I envy them) who can do a project all the way to completion before starting a new. You guys can come over too, by the way.

See ya soon. Clara

Good Afternoon Everyone. I am waiting for my flight back home from Houston and had a little time to send a note. It sounds like a number of you are working really hard to get your HST exchange and Strip Exchange projects done. Well, I have some very good news for those of you that are afraid that you may not make the Jan. 1, 2012 deadline. IT HAS BEEN EXTENDED. Yes, that is correct. The deadline has been adjusted and the new revised date in May 1, 2012. So relax and take a deep breath. You will get them finished and you can still have them included in the S.O.S. HST/Strippers Keepsake book/DVD.

There were be an official announcement coming shortly on the Daily Blog and in the newsletter.

What page is the info on if we would like our quilt pictured in the book that 'someone' is putting together? I know the entries have to be in by Jan 1, 2012. I haven't visited this site since Aug. I've been so busy....Thanks, Doreen

Clara here. I wanted to open up a new topic to express my thanks to everyone who has opened up their heart and literally shared it with me. I have been blown away recently by notes, fabric, hugs, handmade items, and so many other amazing gestures just to say thank you to me. We shared a journey together with the Sisterhood of the Traveling Triangle Exchange that was unique and will always stay with me and many others.

I just received a box at tonight's TQS dinner that was filled with blocks from all over the world and states of the US. Even the box was handmade with poems inside, the lyrics to Sorting Queen and yes, a recorded version of Sorting Queen. (hint, the box was made by the same lady who made the hat) I can't seem to get my thoughts together right now to express the gratitude I feel. To Everyone who was involved in that project, sorting hat, cards, fabric, extra HSTs, handmade postcards, even a card for my hubby too, I say with my hand over my heart (not while I'm typing of course)... Thank you! Sniff.

I will write again, when I am at home and will post some photos to share. This was something I will cherish forever.

Clara Lawrence aka Sorting Queen :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Barbara,

Please send me your email address and I'll send it to you. I can't attach to a private message though, so it needs to an email through my profile page.
