Squishies for the Alliance

I had such a blast last week-end putting together 20 squishies to be given away by the Alliance for American Quilts to help promote their "Crazy for Quilts" contest, which as you know is a fundraiser for this worthy organization.

Squishies are little baggies filled with crazy quilt goodies...in this case, small pieces of fancy fabrics, some lace, trim, thread, mother of pearl buttons, and cording...

To be eligible to win one, just click on over to the Alliance, and fill out a little three question survey about how you might approach creating a crazy quilt for their contest. You are not obligated to enter in order to win, nor are you bound to use the techniques you list that are of interest to you.
This is all just to get you thinking about the contest...and hopefully excited enough to decide to enter! The contest quilt must be 16" X 16"....not a large investment of time...

Here are my "squishies in progress". I put all of my favorites in there... ;-)
So do try to win one...I know you'll like it!

Hi Allie, Congratulations on getting your Crazy quilt
finished to be the first entry. And what a beautiful
quilt! I served on the AAQ Board and enjoyed my
years helping to further this important organization.
