    Another little quilt for AAQI -- Carnival Time!

    Just finished this tonight. I call it Carnival Time! The black fabric has assorted sizes of dots of assorted colors -- might just look linty in this pic.

    Hope you like it!

    I just love this!! Is this a miniature quilt or is the picture just small? I just love it when people use black as a background or filler color as I think it just sets off all the other colors so well.

    So Fun! Reminds me of outerspace! I like the offset design, too.

    What a happy quilt! It will bring sunshine wherever it resides.

    It's a mini -- just 9" by 12" -- that is the size limit for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.

    That is great! Thanks to your guild for doing that. I'm working on the guild here to do the same thing. Have you posted any of the little ones that you've made?

    Very pretty. As others have mentioned I like the off-set. I have 3 made waiting to be shipped. Haven't taken pictures yet but will when I get my camera batteries charged. I made them in memory of my sister, brother and SIL. Hope to make more also. It's a wonderful cause.
