    AAQI lastest #33

    What I worked on today...my Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative mini quilt. AAQI.org

    I do the Quilt-A-Month and $1000 challenge. Some months I do more than one, so this is #33.

    Pictures show template & design grid, original log cabin, after cutting & resewing, finished front and finished back. Got the idea while watching a "quilt in a day" episode. Used the 1.5 inch itty bitty twister tool. Finished size 8.5 X 8.5 inches

    Hope you enjoy!

    Very cute. I like the way you finished the back of your quilt.

    Very nice--fun to see this from start to finish. I have 3 that need to be bound and sent off. AAQI will need to replenish supplies after Houston Quilt Show.

    Very clever use of the twister tool. I love the colors you used too.
