Quilts for Alzheimer's Patients
Jeffree Itrich at the University of California San Diego is spearheading a project to give lap-sized quilts to Alzheimer's research study patients throughout the USA. So far she has collected 600 quilts and she has recipients for a lot more! Jeffree lost her mom to severe dementia, and she says this project really warms her heart. Can you tell from the photo? She's a quilter too.
If you want to read more about this project, or to donate a quilt, click here. Another good article about the project can be found here.
Take a look at Nancy's wonderful selvage quilts on her Flickr page. And what a treasure trove of quilty inspiration her page is! Nancy lives in PA so you know she's enjoying some good quilting weather.
