Any, but prefer traditional piecing. Do some with fused images.

Hi Audrey! Thanks for joining the minis group. Have you really sent so many quilts to AAQI that they've raised $20,000? OMGosh! I've sent them three quilts, two were sold at Houston, and I've got three more ready to send it, so I'm WAY BEHIND you! I am doing One a Month now.
You are welcome. Thanks for the information. I visited the site. I think I may have time to make something this summer. Is anyone near Sharonville, OH? The creative festival is at the convention center in June.
Hi Audrey! I just wanted to wish you a happy (early) birthday! I've been here for several weeks and I'm really enjoying myself. I don't belong to facebook, twitter and I don't blog, so this is all new to me. I joined several groups and started one for newbies. I started quilting about 6 years ago and I too quilt for the AAQI. I started making those about 2 years ago and recently started joined the "quilt-a-month" club. I signed up for the $1000 challenge as well. I love making the small quilts because I can try out new techniques.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and happy birthday!
