AAQI part II

Hey all,

I am super excited that I have finished my AAQI quilt for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative, that Judy challenged us to do.  I am going to wait to register it with them till just before the MQA Fall gathering.  That way I can show it at the MQA meeting Oct 20 in Cleveland, MS.  I made this in honor of my Uncle, Arnold T. Hammond.  Arnold played tennis a couple of times a week, and tennis is one of my passions.  So I chatted with his daughter in law, Carol Hammond, last Sunday and brainstormed on ideas and she suggested something tennis related.  So without further ado my quilt.  I made most of it last night during Bonnie Hunter's quilt cam time...I am really enjoying that, makes it like sewing with friends... I know she doesn't know me, but I feel like I know her as I have been reading her blog about a year and now with quilt cam, I don't know but it is like hanging out with a good friend,

8.5 inches x 11 inches
Then in a mixed up moment, when signing the back, I realized I signed on the top corner and when the quilt is aligned correctly, that makes my signature upside down and on the top....totally wrong, but somewhat appropriate for a Alzheimer's here is what the back looks like...

and a close up of the mess up!!

Hope it will help raise lots of money for this wonderful cause.


  1. Great job, Terry. That tennis fabric is the perfect choice.
