Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative

Finished, registered and in the mail.  My first mini quilt for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative to be sold or auctioned.   The proceeds go to help find a cure for Alzheimer's.  Please join in, the quilts aren't any bigger then 9 x 12 inches.  All the rules and registering info can be found at alzquilts.org

I machine appliqued the leaves, then embellished with sequins, paint and some free motion machine stitching.   Then quilted it  with a little more stitching.  I'm really getting into the free motion stitching.  These little quilts are great little samplers to experiment on.  
Please help, the quilts are small, a good use for fabric scrapes and a very good cause.  I want to see a cure for Alzheimer's before my daughters reach an age that they have to worry about it. 

Passionnate would be how I feel about this cause so since "Passion" is also the theme for this months Creative Every Day Challenge I'm joining in over at Leah's site.

Thanks

Cynthia Eloise
