    Tonight's accomplishment--registering 8 minis for AAQI

    First time I have used AAQI improved registration. It was an easy process. I use tiny scraps to create this special little quilts. Here they are:

    AAQI is the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Intiative, an all volunteer organization that supports Alzheimer's research. Maximum size of the quilts is 9 x 12. Thanks for looking.

    Oh gosh Gladie, your tiny quilts are beautiful and so small These quilts you make and show us just inspire me to keep aiming to use up even the tiniest of scraps.

    Oh My Goodness!!!!! ..... no wonder you haven't been saddling up with us in the PC corral lately.
    What a great display ... your clothesline and the the individual pics are so nicely staged for us to enjoy.

    A busy lady you have been and these are absolutely incredible miniature detailed stupendous amazing work.
    That would be itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny work!

    Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!

    You're right QE, AAQI quilts all need a "title" so here the list
    1. Steps to the Cabin
    2. Tiny Bits I
    3. Tiny Bits II
    4. Lazy Logs
    5. A Simple Basket
    6. Crazy Basket
    7. Tiny Treasures
    8. Itty Bits

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.
    sewbeadit--it's a toss up for me between Tiny Treasures and Itty Bits. The HST's are 1/2" finished and the 9P's are 3/4" finished. Because they are both so small there's lots of loving time put into both.
    jaciquiltznok-- I just braided a piece of jute with some crochet cotton for the one and used black cotton thread in the other. Easy peasy.
    Lynn--I know you can do it. Leslie Frost is spearheading an AAQI donation in the May DQ swap. I'm sure they accept a quilt from Down Under.

    Amazing work on such tiny canvases. I think I would get a big headache with all those tiny pieces.

    Wow! I admire anyone that can sew minis. Yours are all so gorgeous! My favorites are ones that went a little wild--with the big stitches. I say that because minis are so precise and "Precision" is not my middle name. Great cause! Thank you!!!

    Holy smokes! I can't even imagine how you made those so small. Must be paper pieced, but even so--they're awesome!
