Before our family discovered the mountains, we loved the beach.

AAQI #6487 Tranquility
This Priority: Alzheimer's quilt reminds me of the blue, blue skies and crystal clear water along the Gulf Coast (before the oil spill...but that's another story).

Can you tell that the batiks are their own little quilt sewn on top of the white quilted background?

Did you see that the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative added a new program called the Quilt-a-Month Club?  Of course, when I found out, I immediately signed up...Tranquility is my first quilt to join the club....but it won't be my last!

Have you thought of making a Priority: Alzheimer's quilt but need a little push inspiration?  
There is a new feature on the AAQI blog called Get Ideas which lists bloggers who frequently post pictures of their mini quilts as well as links to specific posts.

Want even more inspiration?  Check out the fabulous art quilts made by Susan, Anya, Beth, Kathy, and Michele .... actually, Michele's quilt is up for auction as we speak!

P.S.  Thanks to Riel, Susan and Beth will be receiving Flea Market Fancy fabric ... 

Happy Sewing!


  1. I have seen the double quilt look in fancy schmanzy art quilts...but oh how I love it in an AAQI may be the first to do it, too, Rene'. It's a bit of tranquility on top of a featherbed!!!

  2. Really pretty...and for a good cause!

  3. I keep watching for your little quilts to get moved to the top of the "for sale" or "for auction" list! This one is just beautiful.

  4. I am so glad that you are posting to your blog. I have missed seeing your projects. I did notice the 4:47 a.m. posting time.
