This is another little art quilt (original design) that I made and donated to AAQI (alzquilts.org).  I used paper piecing and no two fabrics are the same.  On the "facets" I wrote words describing how a person goes from their normal self to the very end.  This particular quilt went to the Houston Quilt Market last year.  It raised about $125 in the auction.

Julie, that is an awesome quilt.  I really like how the edges are left to fray - much like the heartbreaking process that Alzheimer's is. It's a moving tribute!

This is outstanding, Julie!  The purpose it has already served is something you can always be very proud of, too.  Your design interprets the disease well.  My Mom had alzheimer's.  Thanks for sharing this with us.

Thanks for all the compliments.  This particular one is my favorite of all the ones that I've done.

Linny - I'm sorry that you had to see your mother go through this.  It's a long, sad process but we were lucky...Mom remained pleasant all the way to the end.

Such a beautiful way to raise money and awareness for such a devastating disease. Many of us have been touched by Alzheimer's and other dementias in some way. My father's last years were clouded by dementia but he, like your mother, had his wonderful personality intact until his death at age 91.
