    Such a cute little quilt.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Oh My Goodness!
    When I saw the title of the thread, I had a suspicion this would be your work, OKSGlad ... incredibly perfect!
    And bless you ... that stipple quilting in the light triangles must be teensy-tiny-itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny! YIKES!

    Maybe it IS time for you to keep this mini for yourself!!!!!!

    What size did your mini quilt end up being? It's 8 1/2 inches square which includes the binding. The HST measure 1/2" finished.

    You are welcome SKoyal.

    And glad that you are ... for the work you turn out and for the AAQI that is blessed to receive it.

    QE, some would say I'm a little "corn"y. Because I start with leftovers on most of these little ones, it is unpredictable as to how they will turn out.
    Give it a try wolph33! OBTW little Avery, just under 3 who's sitting on my "yap", likes your puppy!

    Nuts ... corny ... flipping mad!!!
    I'm now wondering when you are going to do a mini-sampler-bear quilt a la Granny59 style!
    And yes, I can see myself following in your footsteps on this ... just give me some time to clear the deck of WIP, UFOs, PhDs etc. a little!! 92/111 FWS now with 1/90 PC among a gazillion others .... and ones I want to do.

    OK, so 2012 goals are now ... subdued, matchy-matchy and a mini .... hhmmmm? maybe I should do them as a three in one?

    Gladie what size do these have to be? I have thought about it. I had one that was 9 1/2" but it wasn't small enough so I recycled it another way. Is there a minimum size or just a maximum size?

    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    Rhonda, these are to be no larger than 9 x 12, but the creativity used in them is limitless. Here's the how to page from alzquilts.org if anyone is interested.

    This afternoon getting the backings and binding cut so I can put a finish on a couple more; so look out for more pictures in the next week or so.

    OKSGlad ... I'm "glad" that you're being so productive ... minis, FWS smalls and the big quilt finishes!!!!!!
    You're really starting off 2012 on a real roll!!

    Looks like you're going to get so much done you'll be saddling up with us for the PC, pretty soon!! *giggles*

    Rhonda, I believe alz.org took 1500 of them to the Houston International Quilt Expo in November and sold somewhere around 1200 there. Anyone can go to the website and purchase quilts online.
    I've been reading some testimonials from some of the early quilt makers. It is heart wrenching to hear what many have gone through with Alzheimer's in their families. I was most affected when my dear childhood neighbor became a victim. I like to think she knew I was there when I visited her a few times, but we never know.

    Don't you love it when you can see a design and use it for yourself, even if it's in a different way. That's why we share. How big are your triangles?
