Save Our Stories

Karen Musgrave and the Alliance for American Quilts recently teamed up with the Alzheimer's Quilt Initiative to document the stories behind the traveling exhibit of quilts, Alzheimer's: Piece by Piece. She interviewed me by phone last week, and posted our conversation on-line this morning. My words will be in the Library of Congress. What a strange feeling that is.

My quilt, Trying to Remember, is a tribute to my dad, who died with Alzheimer's some ten years ago. Here he is, as a young man, and much later, as I remember him.

Like the exhibit and the CD, I started to read through your interview and had to stop (but I'll come back later and work my way through). I saw the exhibit in Nashville (debut showing) - powerful, amazing, so full of emotion... as one of Ami's $1,000 promise quilters, I'm doing what I can to help "raise awareness and fund research through art"

Take care ~
