    #7 Ready

    #7 for AAQI is ready: "Apple Sauce" 8 3/4 x 10"

    This is the last one of this group. Now I just need to get permission from Dakota Collections and I will be ready to register. This has really been fun and hope each little quilt we send will help get help for this dreaded disease.

    Can I ask when this will be done again? I would love to participate in the next. I lost my Grandmother to this hideous disease and would like to give something to try and help a little to eliminate it.

    Thanks, Linda! I forgot to say that 3 out of the 4 buyers emailed me about my minis and one requested patterns which I gladly shared so I want to encourage others to make their emails available that yes, buyers will sometimes want to get in touch with you!

    Hi Sauki,

    This project is ongoing and anyone who wants to follow the guidelines is highly encouraged to jump in and make their contributions. The aaqi links are at the front of the thread. We would all love to see what you get up to....... and you can come back here for inspiration often and to the aaqi site so see the quilts submitted and how they sell.

    All, I just have to share this one I saw on the AAQI site.

    The lady who made it was diagnosed in 2003 and with medication she is still holding strong at 80. She paper pieced this little jem with insets squares that were fussy cut.

    The quilt measures 7.5 x 9 inches!

    I agree Dublb, maybe we can talk at the retreat and come up with some awesome pattern to be able to send. I have done them before but would love to share ideas with you.

    Thanks for making this thread..What a great opportunity to show our support.
