July 2006: The 2006 "Birds of a Feather" Quilt Challenge tour started being planning for in July of 2006.


June 2005: Inspired by the 2005 quilt drawing for PDD and due to popular demand, AHN is once again sponsoring a 2006 “Birds of a Feather” quilt challenge to raise funds for Dr. Ritchie’s PDD research team at UGA.



Please remember that this project is dedicated to raising money to fund PDD research. Your efforts in providing quilt blocks and/or buying tickets for the quilt drawing will help raise funds for research into the cause of PDD, a test for the disease, and eventually control of the disease. This fight to conquer PDD rests on each of our shoulders so please join us. Together we can make a difference.
