I didn't think I would get by with using a "b" instead of the "w".  There is noway that I want to work on a quilt that measures an inch when you are finished...noway...not me......

Rhonda,

Gini has photos of her "inchies" in her blog. They are mini quilts that measure one inch when finished. The two inch quilts are called "Twinchies".

Rhonda Laws:

I type in tears...

I am currently at work and I do NOTHING at this job. So I usually peruse the internet. Well, while looking at various blogs, I came across Ami Simms' blog and she was talking about the Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative. Well, my grandma is in the nursing home because she has Alzheimers. So I clicked on the website and lo and behold the take donations of quilts no bigger than 9x12. Hmmm think that "vision" was for them? YES NO DOUBT IN MY MIND!!! I know exactly what I am supposed to do. I may even start it today! I am in tears but tears of honor and joy and maybe some tears of sadness because I hate what that disease has done to my grandmother!

OK I am working on a name for this quilt (too early for pictures) and I want the name to reflect both sides of my grandmother the loving, kind pre-Alzheimers side and the loving, kind, confused post-Alzheimers side. Here are the ones I am auditioning and I would love some input. Please note some of them are not spelled properly on purpose:

Beautifully Bizzare

Beautiful Bedlam

Kaotic Kindness

Kindhearted Kaos

   Rhonda,  I have years of experience in working with Alzheimer and other dementia patients, and my father had Parkingson's dementia.   The only thing that comes to my mind is  Day and Night.   That is what the dementia's do to people, doesn't matter if they were good folks or bad it makes thier life go from Day to Night.

You choose what feels good to you.    PS I watched the videos on free motion that you posted the other day, thanks for the link.

Granny M I posted 4 choices and I wanted you to pick from those. They also kinda go with the quilt I am sorry for the confusion. I guess I didn't make myself clear

I like the Khaotic Kindness...

I know all about Altheimers& Dementia.  I was my Grandmothers caregiver for 4 years in her home..she is gone now, but the toll the disease takes is... the spirit & life from the ones we love the most. ( I have tears now). She is the one who most inspired me today to do what I love..quilting, baking.  I helped her for many years , learning so many things & watched her slowly slip away....Many times she could not explain in words what to do...but she could show you.

I wish all who are dealing with this is Patience & Love.. and (((Hugs)))

Susan.....
