    Beautiful quilts ladies. I have a question for you - What did you do for your label? I can not find anything in on the site for guidance as to what should be on it.

    Thanks, rwquilts!

    Dragonfly Nana: When you get your email with the registration number, it will include instructions about that. You will put the reg. no. on the back, on the lower right corner. If you use 'freaky fast triangles' in a light color fabric, you can just write on the triangle with a permanent fabric marker -- that's what I do. For the quilt name, your name and your city and state, I usually use the marker to write on a small piece of fabric, then fuse that to the back of the quilt.

    Except for the reg. no. in the corner however, you can do as you like with a sewn on or fused on label.

    Does that help?

    Yes Leslie, Thank you.
    I have to give credit to the pattern designer too so I can do that on one corner with the quilt name and put mine on the other. I will use my tiny dragonfly to put the registration number.
    Now I can get them bound!
    Thanks again.

    What a great group to bring to our attention. This is right down my alley. Since I live overseas I can make several and send all at once for the same price as they are light and small. Thanks!

    Suziehammond, so glad to have you join us! You are right -- you might as well make several and mail them all at once!

    Dragonfly Nana, those Bono Roses are fabulous! I can see why you wanted to do those -- they are very beautiful and graphic.

    I read on the site to be sure to get the designer's permission if you use a pattern from any where. Some fabric designers don't allow their fabric to be used in 'for sale' projects and these do go on sale. So, be careful. Someone who donates these said hers was refused because she did not get permission to use a pattern. So it was returned to her for that.

    Yes, Beequilter, that is true. AAQI is very careful about that. If your little quilt is not an original design, then you must say where you saw the pattern, and must enclose consent from the designer when you mail in your quilt.

    One place to look for designs to use is McCall's quilting mags. On one of the Contents pages, at the bottom, you'll find a blanket statement of permission to use any of the designs.

    I have found, however, that designers are glad to give permission for their designs to be used in AAQI quilts, as they know that they'll get proper acknowledgment, and the quilts are going for a good cause.

    Anyone can PM me for more on this subject!

    Very true Leslie. The designer that gave me permission for the roses asked only that I send her a picture of the finished product so she could post on her Facebook page. In her posting she not only showed the picture but explained about AAQI and how proud she was that one of her designs was being used for such a worthy cause.

    That will reach a lot of quilters and hopefully inspire some of them to help AAQI too!

    That's great, Nana! The more who know, the better!

    After one of the ones I made sold, I sent another email to the designer to let her know.

    Great Challenge Leslie!!!! I just sent you pm of my five quilts so far. Maybe I'll up my own challenge and do five minis in June. I encourage everyone to JOIN the QUILT A MONTH CLUB on AAQI.org. In addition, you can join the $1000 promise (mine have raised $525 so far).

    Here's my first, ready to go as soon as I get the registration number.



    The flower is a wild rose. It is pink, not peachy yellow.

    Very pretty ladies, such beautiful minis you all are creating.

    I noticed that they seem to be backed up posting quilts, there are so many quilts on their website "awaiting assignment"..hope that is a good sign of many donations being received.

    Yesterday, I took pics of my wild rose hedge for a friend and then later that day, I saw your mini of the wild rose. The flower shapes and yellow centers are identical!
