Friday Finish: Slice of Summer

July's Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt is one I started over Memorial Day weekend.

AAQI Slice of Summer
I pieced the top before heading to the beach and completed most of the hand stitching while on vacation.  Slice of Summer measures 8.25" x 6".

The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative has put out the call for more quilts.  They will begin the hoarding process soon for November's International Quilt Festival in Houston.  This year's booth will be 50% larger than last year's, and they hope to take 2,000 quilts!

Wouldn't it be cool to see them all on display?!

Happy Friday! 


  1. I love your mini quilt AND what you do for the AAQI!!! I guess it's time that I try to make a mini for AAQI.

  2. beautiful piece! I love the hand stitching. Looks like a great portable project when you're on the go.

  3. Great quilt Rene'. Does remind me of a "slice of summer" too.

  4. Beautiful! How many have you made?

  5. Rene', it's really great! I am loving it!
