World Series

You probably thought I was going to write about the World Series of Baseball, right?  Nope.  I'm here to lift up a new cause that you may not have ever heard of.  It's called the World Series of Quilt Challenge and the goal is to raise awareness and donations for Alzheimer's Disease research.  Eight nationally known quilters have contributed small 16" x 16" quilts, four for the American League and four for the National League.  This is one time when you can cross party lines and vote as often as you'd like.  How can you vote?  By donating $1 for the quilt you like -- feel free to donate more!  Right now Sue Nickels is in the lead.  Take a look for yourself.  I can certainly see why Sue is in the lead but I sure do like the one from Caryl Bryer Fallert too.

Just about every night on the local news there's another family searching for a lost loved one who suffers from Alzheimer's or dementia.  We really do need to support the research for finding treatment and a cure for this dreaded disease.
