Alliance for American Quilts Voting Now Open


detail, Virginia is for Lovers

Virginia is for Lovers, 16" x 16", 2011
 The voting for the 2011 Alliance for American Quilts is now open -- through April 20th. My entry is quilt #117, Virginia is for Lovers. It is hand appliqued and hand quilted and based on a circa 1845 crib quilt in my collection (see below).
I would love to win the Handi Quilter quilting machine and hope that you will consider voting for me. You must be a member to vote but it is not too late to join the Alliance; an excellent organization that does so much to preserve the history of American Quilts. I especially enjoy the Quilt Index. If you join by April 19th, Amy will email you a ballot. You can join on the Alliance website and pay by credit card or paypal, it is only $25.00 (tax deductible) and again it goes to a great group.


I thought you might like to see my challenge quilt along with the antique inspiration, a circa 1845 crib quilt from the Shenandoah valley of Virginia. Thanks for visiting and for considering my quilt.
