More Mini Quilts

Today I made a couple more mini quilts for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. These are so quick and fun to make, plus a great way to practice free motion quilting.

This is a close up of the "Diane-shiko". I used a Hera marker for the lines.

This mini whole cloth is 11.5"  x 8".

This basket pattern is from the Blessings quilt. It is 12" x 6.5" (I had to cut some of the ends off to get the quilt to be within the measurements that AAQI asks for - oh well).

I really appreciate all the kind comments people are leaving, sorry I haven't been getting back - I try. It is just that I have been limiting my time on the computer lately trying to accomplish other things. A huge thank-you though.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Love the blue and white, one of my favorite color combos. Read your previous post...your laundry room has got to be one of the prettiest around. Your quilting is again, beautiful.

Those blue baskets are just gorgeous -- I can't decide if I'm more in love with the piecing or the quilting.
