    Suziehammond, so glad to have you join us! You are right -- you might as well make several and mail them all at once!

    Dragonfly Nana, those Bono Roses are fabulous! I can see why you wanted to do those -- they are very beautiful and graphic.

    I read on the site to be sure to get the designer's permission if you use a pattern from any where. Some fabric designers don't allow their fabric to be used in 'for sale' projects and these do go on sale. So, be careful. Someone who donates these said hers was refused because she did not get permission to use a pattern. So it was returned to her for that.

    Yes, Beequilter, that is true. AAQI is very careful about that. If your little quilt is not an original design, then you must say where you saw the pattern, and must enclose consent from the designer when you mail in your quilt.

    One place to look for designs to use is McCall's quilting mags. On one of the Contents pages, at the bottom, you'll find a blanket statement of permission to use any of the designs.

    I have found, however, that designers are glad to give permission for their designs to be used in AAQI quilts, as they know that they'll get proper acknowledgment, and the quilts are going for a good cause.

    Anyone can PM me for more on this subject!

    Very true Leslie. The designer that gave me permission for the roses asked only that I send her a picture of the finished product so she could post on her Facebook page. In her posting she not only showed the picture but explained about AAQI and how proud she was that one of her designs was being used for such a worthy cause.

    That will reach a lot of quilters and hopefully inspire some of them to help AAQI too!

    That's great, Nana! The more who know, the better!

    After one of the ones I made sold, I sent another email to the designer to let her know.

    Great Challenge Leslie!!!! I just sent you pm of my five quilts so far. Maybe I'll up my own challenge and do five minis in June. I encourage everyone to JOIN the QUILT A MONTH CLUB on AAQI.org. In addition, you can join the $1000 promise (mine have raised $525 so far).
