Each year, attendees of the quilting retreat at the Ranch at Ucross are faced with a challenge project. This year organizer Nikki Collins chose the Priority Alzheimers Quilt project, part of the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI).
One of the participants, Carol Kolf, has been a consistent donor of quilts since 2006 when AAQI began. Carol provided prizes for four categories, and the attendees voted for their favorites in each of the following categories: Favorite Nature, Favorite Landscape, Favorite Whimsical, and Overall Favorite. Twenty two quilts were entered in the competition. Everyone was given one ballot to vote on her favorites in each category, and they were able to purchase additional ballots for $1.00 each. $117 in cash was collected and donated as well as the 22 quilts. It was so hard to choose. There were so many wonderful quilts donated. Thanks girls! Quilts donated are listed below.
