Quilt for Alzheimers
Tonya challenged us to make a quilt for Alzheimers quilts. The sale of these small quilts raises money for Alzheimers research. I made mine pretty quickly, but then got lazy about finishing it. It's finally done, registered at the site, and ready to mail. At some future point this will be offered for sale, either by auction or flat rate sale. When it comes up it'll be at www.alzquilts.org . If I think of it, I'll post here when it's available.
I made this in memory of my dad who died in 2002. His birthday is coming up this Saturday, December 13. He would have been 93 this year! We were lucky that his Alzheimers was a late onset, and he never got to the point of forgetting us. It was just starting to be more evident when he died of other causes.
My dad liked to watch the birds Up North at the cabin, so this singing birdie is for him. Happy birthday, Dad! I love you and miss you!
