"Can't seem to button it right" by Maureen Supple

It's Facebook Foto Friday again, and time to share another quilt from the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI). I thought I'd share this remarkable little quilt called "Can't seem to button it right" by Maureen Supple of Littleton, Colorado. When I was buying a group of quilts a few weeks back, this one really jumped out at me. It spoke to me.

I have a keen interest in AAQI quilts that speak boldly and directly to the challenges of living with Alzheimer's, or caring for someone with the disease. It's a frustrating condition, but every so often there is a moment of humor and light. With the simple idea of skewed buttons, Maureen Supple captured the moment brilliantly in this quilt. How could I not buy it?

Happy Facebook Foto Friday!


  1. Thanks for buying my quilt! I've been a long-time quilter for AAQI, and your purchase helps me toward my $1000 Promise goal.

    1. Hi Maureen, You should know that everyone who's seen this quilt goes nuts over it. I brought it to a guild meeting a few weeks ago, and it was one of many AAQI quilts I had with me. Yours is the one that caused the biggest reaction among the audience. It's truly remarkable. Keep on quilting! -Bill
