AAQI Finale

Many of you know that AAQI will be dissolved at the end of the year. Ami has done an amazing job and I do not doubt for one second she will reach the goal of one million dollars! Here is my final AAQI quilt that will put me over the $1000 pledge I made. 
It is called Hair Duty.  Bill Volckening suggested the title after I mentioned every Friday I bring my mom to her hair appointment. When I'm not in town my brother has "Hair Duty". When I leave work and tell my hubby, I'm on hair duty, he knows exactly what I am talking about. The strings remind me of her wisps of hair.
I wanted to have a creative backing. My mom now talks about her early farm days so I thought this was fitting.

Drum roll..........

Another research award has been granted! Click on the title to read more.

PS: Tuesday Randy will post the third border of the medallion quilt and I'll post a linky on Tuesday or Wednesday so we can see round one and two. Thank you for those who are sewing along with us!!

PSS: I've got a Quilt Market giveaway next week too!! Watch for details.


  1. Congrats on your goal met AGAIN. Its wonderful to see your goals...and you do accomplish them! I sure enjoyed the little stories that go with these. Blessings

  2. You have done a wonderful job on these AAQI quilts, Lori. I am proud to own two of them. I love the significance behind the designs and names. I had wanted to do an AAQI quilt before the deadline, as part of the SewCalGal challenge, but I got overwhelmed when I started reading the submission process. Maybe it was just a bad day for me mentally. Anyway, now I don't know if there is still time. I need to check it out quickly.

  3. Congratulations on reaching an amazing goal, Lori. How nice for those who have purchased one of your quilts to have a little treasure with a wonderful story sewn into it. I love your Hair Day quilt, and the story of how it got its name!

  4. What a sweet quilt - so simple, yet it carries such meaning. You should be so proud of your efforts! Your Hair Duty reference is one that many can relate to, I'm sure. Blessings!
