A new AAQI quilt

Today, I made a new mini quilt for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.  I call this one Inside Out.  The name came from the fact that the points of the upper star are outside the red arc and the points on the smaller star are on the inside of the red arc.  I used made fabric for the corners of the stars and the background fabric.  I added the red to the turquoises for a surprise effect.  I really like the way it is working.  Playing with colors is so much fun!
Tomorrow, I am going to do more work on the ribbon quilt before I go over to watch Bella for a few hours in the early evening.  I will try and post progress before I go.
Joyful quilting, everyone.

I recently finished an AAQI quilt too. I just need to finish the label. It is to honor my grandmother who has Alzheimers. I have to be honest though...I am having a difficult time sending it off. It reminds me of her and because she doesn't know us anymore it is kinda like keeping a part of her around...weird I know. I will mail it eventually.
