I've added another Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt to my collection.

#9534 Love made by Yumi Tsuruta
Love was hand appliquéd, hand pieced and hand quilted by the talented Yumi from Japan.  I love how the quilting lines echo the heart shape throughout.  

As much as I like making these mini quilts,  I also like supporting the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative by purchasing them, especially ones made by quilters I "know". 

I have not met Yumi but feel like I know her from our mutual friend Michele.  Some day the three of us will quilt together....even if it is virtually via Skype!


  1. Yumi will be so thrilled! I loved that one. Glad it found a good home.

  2. Awesome and fun! Love the colors and puffy letters and the way the quilting echoes the word.

  3. Rene,
    Thanks for addopting my baby. Meet me on Skype near future.


  4. Yumi is an amazing quilter and such a wonderful facebook friend. I am so delighted to have her join in my/our Liberated Quilting Challenge group. The libquilters yahoo message board quilters have asked so many questions about her quilts after I uploaded them into my group album..she's a mini celebrity right now! We love you, Yumi! And you, Missy...this is a wonderful purchase and right now we truly need buyers and love them (you) dearly. Way to go, Rene'!
