    WOW - Amazing! I just finished a log cabin with 1" finished strips and thought that was too small; can't imagine doing one this size.

    Perfect AAQI mini and I love the name - I hope it gets auctioned for a bundle for the cause - it deserves it!

    True confessions time -- I put just one line of quilting in the red border around the center section. With all of those seams, I just could not see doing anything across the whole quilt. I may add some hand stitching somewhere else, but my stitches are not small enough, normally, to do something in just one of those tiny squares or triangles.

    What would you have done with this one?

    How to quilt these little ones is always a dilema. Yes the stitching in the red would be my first step, too--I might have SID on the edges rather than in the middle. With the stitching down the middle I might straight stitch down the middle of the second row of checkerboards. I'm like you with the HQ stitching and absolutely worthless when arthritis bothers. How about tacking with regular thread a few corners in the broken dishes section and hide knots on the back? It would give some definition to the center and a balance of "quilting" in a subltle manner.
    Have you ever used the 3 point zigzag (or serpentine) stitch for MQ? (On my Bernina I set the stitch width and length at 2 with this stitch.) I have found this to be very useful when cross hatch quilting a little quilt (ie log cabins) Not sure if you can see what I mean in this mini. These are 1/4 logs done a while ago (stitching has improved since then!) If I remember, the binding is just pinned in place so quilt isn't laying flat.

    No dumb questions here! AAQI is the Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative, a nonprofit in Michigan. They collect donated mini quilts (no bigger than 9" by 12") and sell them to support research into Alzheimers disease. I don't know how to create a link -- visit alzquilts.org on the Web to learn more. The prices start at about $35 I think, and go on up. Right now, they have some pieces done by John Flynn while he's demonstrated the Flynn Frame at various shows. Very interesting to look at.

    Let me know if you have more questions!

    Thank you for the info Leslie - a very worthy cause! It turns out that I did know what the Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative was... just didn't put the acronym together in my mind. They are going to LOVE your quilt. It is inspiring to look through their site. I plan to make them a mini pictorial quilt this next year.
