    One of my quilt guild friends gave me the swirled fabric scraps. Tonight I made these 2 tops, one for the AAQI and the other for my friend as a Thank You. Bev will finish her top, now to finish the AAQI quilt. These measure 7.5 x 8 inches unfinished.

    Thank you all. This is fabric I would've never bought and I am pleased at the outcome. Last night I have the black one MQ and binding on. Now to sew it down. I still have some of the swirly fabric left--now where do I go from here? I'm thinking a mini Trip around the world.

    While the GK were here last night I got the binding finished. I used 4 folded Triangles in the corners on the back for hanging. I hope to send this to AAQI. The inner border on these is really a purple, not the periwinkle that shows in the pics.

    A tip (although haven't done it for this one). Cut a piece of freezer paper slightly smaller than your little quilt. Press it to the backside of the quilt. This gives the quilt some stability to "stand" in the back of a grouping on a table or on a shelf.

    Ready for AAQI
