Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Leslie, thank you so much for this challenge. I have been meaning to make quilts for AAQI for a long time. But, I hate to admit it, it just keeps getting postponed. Your challenge will help me be committed and get going. Thank you again.
Leslie, please count me in on this. Haven't ever made something this small, but with Mom having Alzheimer's - we need to do whatever we can.
I am for waiting for "written permission" from pattern designer - which I know will come - then on to the sewing!
Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.
What a coincidence that I found this thread now! I have just finished registering two quilt and waiting on instruction to mail. They will be my first two to AAQI, but hopefully not the last. I enjoyed making them and I love small projects, and what a great cause!
Thanks for starting the challenge, I will be posting pictures after I get a response.

I finished two tops today...will put them together tomorrow and then contact for registration no"s.
What a fabulous response! Thanks to you ALL!
Thanks for adding other names, oksewglad. I just couldn't remember them while I was writing this post. Also, be sure to PM me with the reg. numbers for your recent quilts to AAQI. I'm going to set up a Group Challenge on the AAQI site, and I need the reg. nos. to link the quilts to that Group.
Hooray! Good start!!
Love to pp, need to get some patterns out!

Thanks, Leslie, for starting this! Also, I'm glad you are posting it to their site under Group Challenges! The 9 minis I sent in are from these 2 threads:
Three More Minis!!
Here Comes More Minis!!!
The registration #'s are: 9687 - 9695
I've done one more improvisational mini since then and will get pics posted of it today. I was surprised how a great big heart just showed up in the mini, a real surprise at the end! It seems hearts are always finding their ways into my quilts somehow and I suppose it's making a statement of my great love for quilts and flowers.
