    Thanks for the numbers! I tried to do the Group Challenge form on the AAQI site last night, but it did not go through for some reason. I will try again tonight and hope to have better luck.

    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.
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!

    What a RELIEF(!!) to know that each one of us do not have to make 250 quilts! haha! Somehow I thought I was committing to do 250, but you meant for the group total to be 250! haha! They are so addictive that it probably would not take me long to do 250. Anyway, here is one more I finished 3/22, but am holding this to send in with a bunch more that I need to make. The butterfly applique is from DM's estate as I am trying to use up some of the things in her stash I find. It's vintage and 40+ years old. It's fun to just do a wonky flower with no planning. However, I thought my focal point were the flowers, but when I got done, all I saw was the great big heart between them.....lol....it pays to plan ahead sometimes. Here's the mini called Heart and Flowers.

    I love the Hearts and Flowers! Good inspiration for others -- just begin with something, and stop when it's 9" by 12"! When you register this, be sure to note the use of your vintage fabric -- that should make it more attractive to buyers. And we want them to sell!

    I made 6 little quilts over the last couple of months just for this organization, put them in a bin for safekeeping, and promptly forgot about them. Yikes! Thanks for the reminder!

    I just registered them, and will post photos when I get the registration numbers. This is the first time I've done this, so hopefully I did it right. (Edited to add: Here's a sneak peak.)

    Both my great-grandmother ("Mammaw") and my grandmother ("Granny") developed Alzheimers in their later years. It was heartbreaking to see them lose their abilities. I dearly hope that a cure can be found (and soon!) for this horrible disease.
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here.

    I'm in - definitely want to make several as several members of my family, including Mom, have had this terrible disease. The sooner we find a cure, the BETTER!!!!!!! Mom was diagnosed at age 92, but showed signs of dimentia for several years before. I'm not sure any more that I want to live that long!

    Make that 7. I found another one I'd started, but hadn't quite finished. It's complete now.

    I just sent my mini quilt this morning and they say it’d take about one week.
    Thank you for this opportunity Leslie!

    Thanks for sharing. I love the variety of techniques you have used in all of these.
