Alzheimer's Quilt Initiative

article by Linda of All Dunn
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 recently. 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.


  1. Your quilt is amazing, Linda.
    I would love to see it up close.

    Thank you so much for posting the link to your interview. It was incredibly inspiring to me.

  2. Thank you for sharing Linda, both your quilt and your dad :) I used to work doing activities with folks who had dementia and alzheimer's dementia, so I'm very familiar with the disease and its path. Your quilt is terrific.
