I'm in the Final Four - Alliance for American Quilts Contest

  I'm positively over the moon excited to announce that my quilt "Virginia is for Lovers" has made it to the final four in the Alliance contest.  Thank you to everyone who voted for it in the first round, there were over a 100 quilts and I cannot believe my quilt is one of the last quilts standing.  It will either win grand prize or 1st, 2nd or 3rd -- Wooo HOO.
  So please vote for my quilt in the final round.  Ballots went out to Alliance members Friday a.m. and voting closes Monday night.  (Alliance membership is required for voting). The winners will be announced Wednesday.  So stay tuned.
  It would be a huge honor to win the contest and the grand prize of a Handi Quilter quilting machine would be absolutely amazing.
  Thanks again.

Alliances: People, Patterns, Passion Contest Voting

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 an antique quilt in my collection.
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.

Here is  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.
