This quilt demonstrates components of the brain involved in Lewy Body Dementia.  It often is related to Parkinson's and hallucinations.  The person affected often realizes they are having hallucinations which occur in most cases of Lewy Body Dementia.  The abstract picture was printed on cotton and then metallic thread and glass beads were added.  A frame of was constructed using Peltex to give the quilt depth.

The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative has raised more than $1.1 million for Alzheimer's research since January 2006! It is no longer possible to donate a Priority: Alzheimer's Quilt. Between January 2006 and August 2013 the AAQI has received more than 15,600 donated quilts. I commend all the contributors and most of all those who worked hard every day to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's, a devastating disease for those who have it and those who love them.

I was able to raise over $1000 to Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. It was an honor.
