AAQI Quilts for Sale, and In The Design Process

AAQI Quilts for Sale!

I just noticed that two quilts I made for AAQI are now up for sale!  I'm going to "advertise" them on Facebook too, so I hope they sell soon. 

The first one is called Ocean Waves Remembered, and is for sale for $40.  It's 9 X 9 inches square, and has hanging triangles on the back.  Click on the title under the quilt to go to the AAQI page.


OCEAN WAVES REMEMBERED

and the second quilt for sale ($30) is #12672 named "Homespun Hope".  It's 6.5 X 6.5 inches and is made from leftover scraps from my friend Jill's quilt.  Jill sat next to me at the Dear Jane retreat in Shipshewana, IN and has provided me with scraps for more quilts for this great charity.  I love her plaids! Click on the title under the picture to go to the sale site.

These would make wonderful gifts, and can be used as wall hangings, or mug rugs. 

A friend here in Williamsburg, (Mary Jane Gantzler) gave me her little snippings from her blocks for East Street, and I have started working on them to make another little quilt for AAQI.   Here is a picture of the little purple hst's that will be part of a new little quilt to donate:


The donation quilts have to be 9 x 12 inches or smaller in size, so that is perfect for these little scraps.  These little hst's will finish at 3/4 inch square.  So cute! Thanks Mary Jane!

Here's a start on another little one, using some red and white scraps from my Easy Street blocks:



It would finish at 4.5 inches square right now, but I will be adding more so it will be larger.  I'll let you know when these are sent to the AAQI organization, and again when they come up for auction.  Such fun, and all for a good cause.

Merry Christmas everybody!

  4. These are really very pretty. You do an excellent job matching your points and I know how difficult that can be on such small blocks.
