Award winner - Alliance for American Quilts contest

My 4 block applique antique reproduction quilt, Virginia is for Lovers, is the 3rd prize winner in the Alliances Quilt Contest with the Alliance for American Quilts. What an incredible honor as there were more than a 100 quilts in the contest. Thank you to everyone who voted for my quilt. Click here to see all the award winning quilts.

What did I win, you ask? A gift basket including items from The Quilt, Quilters Club of America, Fons & Porter, Dharma Trading Company, Darlene Zimmerman, Riversilks, and C&T Publishing. I'll post a pic when the basket arrives.
And if you aren't tried of voting, the Alliance is now holding a viewer's choice voting. You can vote as a web viewer or in conjunction with a live exhibit like last week's show in Paducah.  My friend Bonnie from Georgia posted great pics of my quilt and the 4 award winners hanging together in Paducah.  Thank you.

Quilt 117 is my entry. Click here for the link to vote. Or go directly to the ballot
Votes will be tallied and a Viewer's Choice award will be given for each exhibition venue and one additional award will be determined by web viewers.
The voting will close on Monday, October 24 at 9 pm Eastern.

Thanks again for the votes and all the support and especially the wonderful comments. And if you haven't seen the full quilt or the story of its making, scroll down to prior posts about it or click on Alliance in the label list below.  And see my antique quilt blog for even more about this quilt.
