My two AAQI quilts are finally up for sale, if you are interested. You can read about them here.
SewCalGal's FMQ Challenge for 2013 included the option to do an AAQI quilt, that was the nudge I needed.
The FMQ skill from the SewCalGal FMQ Challenge in 2012 that I implemented in the first quilt was quilting using stencils, which I couldn't do to save me, initially. Practice makes all the difference. Two of last year's challenges involved stencils and by the second one I was starting to believe I could do it. I think it gives a more traditional look to a quilt. The quilt on the left was done entirely using stencils.
On the right I implemented skills learned in Patsy Thompson's challenge about borders. After doing SITD around the pinwheels, I stitched border designs through the sashing and outer border.
I'll be linking this up with SewCalGal's Challenge #2 here.
