Crazy Quilt Challenge



What I'm working on --a crazy quilt for this year's Alliance for American Quilts challenge. They are currently accepting entries/donations of 'crazy quilts' which will be auctioned this fall on eBay to help with their mission of preserving American Quilts and quilt history. In honor of their 16th year, the quilts are 16 inches square and must be postmarked by June 1, 2009. If you are a quick worker, there is still time to join in and "there's room for all kinds of crazy". Anyone can buy a quilt on eBay to help support the Alliance. I'll post when it is time to vote for your favorite and again when it is time to starting bidding.
I'm taking the theme literally and spelling it out, as you can see in the sneak peek block. Drafting paper pieced letters in a log cabin, cq format with strong graphic appeal of black and white and hot pink/fuchsia. What a lot of fun for a great cause. If you haven't visited the Alliance yet, finish reading my posts and then hurry on over to their site where you will find many treasures including the Quilt Index one of the best quilt research resources.
