Last year at Houston Festival I was recruited to help raise funds for Ami Sim’s Alzheimer Quilt Initiative. Ami has taken this torch very serious since this horrid disease took her Mom’s mind and ultimately her life. Every year in the fall there is a “quilt off” between two teams of today’s “Super Stars”. Money is earned two fold. First off, you can vote for your favorite quilt by simply pledging $1.00 per vote. Secondly, the quilts ultimately go for auction. These precious babies measure 16″ x 16″. I was both horrified and honored when I was asked to participate this year – I was delighted to be a part of Ami’s efforts – but horrified when I saw the “greats” who were participating. In the end I turned to silk and hand quilting…….Please go here to vote for Pedro – and that would be me. Go team FEED DOGS!
