Antique Crib Quilt and Alliance for American Quilts Contest

circa 1845 antique crib quilt, block detail
Hope you'll indulge me in sharing my circa 1845 Shenandoah Valley of Virginia antique crib quilt and my reproduction again, I have number of new followers since springtime and I think they'll enjoy seeing it and...... I also want to let people know there are a few days left in the Alliances Viewers Choice contest (voting closes 9 p.m. eastern time on Monday Oct. 24th.  Below is my miniature reproduction, Virginia is for Lovers, size 16 x 16.  It is hand appliqued (the little baskets are only 1.5" tall) and hand quilted.  Quilt number 117 in the contest.  Go to http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07e3samo2ogn3k75iz/a01ztgu2x75ev/questions ** If that link does not work or shows survey already taken, then go to
http://www.allianceforamericanquilts.org/, click on link "View, vote, bid! Viewer's Choice Voting" and on next page click on "View, Vote, Bid" to get to the survey.  Again it is number 117.  This contest is separate from the springtime voting (I am thrilled to say that I won 3rd prize in that voting).  Thank you for the support.
