Shortly after I typed this blog post about my Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt, I saw this question posed by Ami on Facebook and Twitter: "How many Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts have YOU purchased?"
Hmmm....good question.....so I started counting......
|AAQI Quilts #6601 and #6733|
Not counting today (because I may go shopping...haha), I have purchased 16 Priority: Alzheimer's quilts...eight have been given as gifts, and eight are hanging in my "studio". The above picture shows the two most recent additions to my ever growing collection.

In addition to making quilts to raise money for Alzheimer's research, I have found that I quite enjoy collecting these amazing little works of art made by others. I especially treasure the AAQI quilts made by my bloggy friends, and I am thrilled when I find those on the Quilts for Sale page.

One commenter on Facebook mentioned that her goal is to purchase one from every state. What a cool idea! I like it....gives me another reason to collect them....need to go check where my quilts originated ;-)
So....how many Priority: Alzheimer's quilts have YOU purchased? Please tell by leaving me a comment; I'd love to know!
By the way, don't feel bad if you haven't purchased any yet....from what I hear 300 new quilts have just been added to the Quilts for Sale page....not to mention, the online quilt auction is open until tomorrow (June 10th) ;-) Go for it...you'll find it is a do-good-feeling guilt-free shopping experience!
