"Michele and Quilt Diva, You warned me.........And i THANK YOU!"

You will have 1 minute to complete this section of your ACT exam.....Plesae fill the bubble that corresponds with the correct answer in completely with a No. 2 pencil. When you are done you will have 10 minutes before the next section....

(ACT: A trademark for a college entrance exam
act: a state of real existence rather than possibiity
act: the process of doing something, a charitable act)

celebrating... THE act!!!!!!

1. When creating a teeny tiny quilt for AAQI what are the measurements not to be exceeded?

A. 10 X 20"
B. 9 X 11"
C. Size doesn't matter because they will take anything!

2. Why would a quilter who has limited time make a quilt for AAQI?

A. Be a martyr
B. CELEBRATE! feeling great about supporting a wonderful and personal cause
C. Give the lemonAID business a try

3. True or False: It is more fun to create the wrong size and host your own auction of 2 quilts and raise $175.00 for research.

Do you see the silhouette the the little girl on the bike? I love the back of quilts!!!

Thank you, Kat at, for buying this piece for $100.00 and donating to the Alzheimers Research! I will be binding it today and then in to the mail it goes.

Friends, I am off to San Diego and Las Vegas for the next 4 days and will be glueing more auction pieces. Send me a note if you have an idea you would like me to play with or a fav quilt I have done on this blog that you would like a mini of......Just may get your wish!

Love, Em

You make me laugh so hard, I choked on my chips. Bet you can't make just one...

9"x12" or smaller including binding's protruding poufiness.

Dang, any more chips and I will have protruding poufiness, too. Oh, wait...I think I already might. I am a woman of a certain age!

And that's the exact right age for all of your fun;)
