    Smile Red and White All Over. Mini quilts for AAQI and one for me!

    The quilts I have at AAQI have been sold at least 9 out of 10 have, so here's three more to add to the sales list. I'm seeing red and white.Name:  010.JPG

    These area great, ok! You must have a lot of patience.

    Thanks Honchey and Jeanie. The Red Star is made of 1 1/4 " fabrics, the H Block from 1 " cuts, the tulip block finishes at 2 1/4", and the last one most of the cuts are 1 1/4" so that makes the 9P 3/4" finished and the checkerboard 1 1/2". And they aren't PP'd.
    I really don't think of it as patience, Jeanie. I just like the challenge of taking leftovers and making something from what a lot of people throw away.
    My favorite is the red tulips, but the cream and fall colored one is slowly growing on me.

    Lovely mini's, OksewGlad. Lots of chatter here again, I love that. Especially when I cannot sleep 'cause I cannot breathe, this is so nice to read the chatter here. Have taken the pill that works for me, and will be fine in 2 minutes and will go back to bed and rest... until kids get up in the morning hours of breakfast. Its fun to see pattern and color choices in everyone's quilting..l

    OK--those are so cute. I too really like the tulip one! Do you do these by hand or machine?

    All of them are beautiful. But, I think I like the tulips the best. Boy, just looking at them, you'd never realize they were so small. Great job!

    You've done it again ... created some incredible masterpieces!
    The H-Block makes me think of a lattice top pie.
    Great display in your cake pan, to give the sizing perspective
    ... the ones on the wall, look so "big"!
    Oh how the camera can deceive the real thing.

    I'm glad you are keeping one for yourself, OKSGlad!!!
    A good reward for yourself, for work well done, and your generosity.
    How fortunate that AAQI is to have you as a donor.

    Like all the quilts. I am going to make it a goal for next year to make at least 1 quilt a month for AAQI. My dad is in very late stage Alzheimer's...so sad. My mom has some dementia too. My sister and I say we are probably doomed to get it too. For now I will do what I can to help raise money to help find a cure for Alzheimer's...or the cause.

    So pretty. I think that first one in red and white would be a beautiful full-sized quilt.
