1845 Virginia Crib Quilt- Revisited

Reproduction of crib quilt block 7"  2011

This is the first block in my quilt for the 2011 Alliance for American Quilts Contest. I am reproducing, in reduced size and fewer blocks, the utterly charming c. 1845 quilt from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia shown below.

Another block from the original quilt.

To read more about this quilt, stop by my antique quilt blog, and hope you will keep me in mind when the voting begins for the Alliance contest (subtle, tasteful plea).  Again, the Alliance is such an important organization and I hope that you will visit their website and consider becoming a member.
