All of the Killer Bee Designs Free Fabric Postcard Patterns are now listed on one page on my website. You can find and download them here. If you are new to making fabric postcards, please read the General Fabric Postcard Instructions first.

Please feel free to use them for your own use or for the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative. You can make a difference by making a small quilt or fabric postcard and donating it to the AAQI for the Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts project.

I have pledged to donate enough quilts to AAQI to bring in $1000 for the cause. Thanks to generous donors who have purchased my quilts, I have helped raise $605 to date. Here is a link to the page of the quilts I have donated: Naomi’s $1000 promise page.

Some of my quilts are for sale right NOW as part of the Mother’s Day Fabric Postcard Sale. Mine are #1062, 2090, and 2091.

However, even cooler is that my sister and tiny nieces and nephews made some fabric postcards, which are also for sale! Theirs are #2140-2145. Check out the press release here.

Okay, Ami, Here’s an official ad for the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative!

I have been reminded this week several times of the amazing power of this project, so I thought I should post about it. First, by a fellow quilt guild member who gave me a huge hug at our meeting this week and noted that she bought one of my Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts and it hangs at her workplace to brighten the world. Second, by an amazing friend of mine who just trekked all the way from Central Texas to Abilene to see the Alzheimer’s: Forgetting Piece by Piece exhibit with her Mom. She has also purchased one of my Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts and the Alzheimer’s: Forgetting Piece by Piece book!

I have been honored to be a part of this adventure by contributing a quilt to the traveling exhibit, and I’ll post about other parts of this project soon.

I also created some free fabric postcard patterns so other quilters could use them to create their own Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts. I will list them over the next couple of weeks. Please use them with my permission for the AAQI.

I created a general fabric postcard pattern, which includes all the stuff you need to know if you’ve never even made a fabric postcard before. The specific patterns will refer to this pattern for techniques. Download it here:

And, here’s the first postcard, the Falling Leaves Postcard Pattern:
