Quilt Auction Tomorrow
You knew that I made an Alzheimer's Priority quilt, don't you? I called it "Dark Ride". A dark ride is a generic term used to describe any type of [carnival] ride that is in a dark enclosed environment, for example a tunnel of love or a house of horror. It's a multi-faceted term. Here's a link to the post on the making of the quilt.
This little quilt (it is only 9"x12") has been shown on The Quilt Show taping of the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. I turned it into Ami Simms and then tried to follow it's progress. I did not see it listed on any of the sales from Houston and wondered what happened to it. Now I know. It had been set aside for the December auction to coincide with the airing of the AAQI episode on The Quilt Show. This episode, by the way, will be free and can be seen on December 6 on The Quilt Show.
The auction starts tomorrow and I'm going to follow #5548 Dark Ride. If you are so inclined, bid on any of the quilts on this auction (there are quilts by some well known people) or go to the Quilts for Sale page and buy.
Wish my little quilt luck! I want it to raise some money for AAQI.
