    These are just spectacular! You're SUPER talented & I much appreciate what you do. My dad had Alzheimer's & a cure/treatment/better screening can't come soon enough. Thank you for your tireless work!

    You are welcome. That's what's fun about the "liberated" style. Precision is not necessary!

    They are awesome. I love them. What does AAQI do with them?
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    They are auctioned off or offered for sale on the following website. Last November 1500 went to the International Quilt Show in Houston and were sold there.
