    My latest little quilt for AAQI

    I know that I shouldn't brag, but I LOVE the way this turned out! I call it "Broken Dishes on a Black and White Table." This is about 9" by 8". For both the checkerboard and the broken dishes sections, I started with 1" strips.

    Can't wait to hear what you think!

    That is really adorable!! You did an amazing job. I am not sure if I could work on something that small.

    thanks for sharing.

    Leslie what a fantastic quilt! The curious one wants to know how you quilted it. I even enlarged the pic, but couldn't tell for sure. This would've been gone in a flash in Houston.

    Love it. What do you do with such tiny quilts? And how do we get to your blog? Perhaps there's a way to include a link in your signature? I want to see how people are using the blogs on this board.

    Terrific quilt and a great project....AAQI (Alzheimer Art Quilt Iniative). I have made 21 so far, nine sold at Houston. Mine are usually very simple, not near as beautiful as yours or OKSEWGLAD's.

    Beautiful quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
