Antique reproduction and Alliance for American Quilts Contest

Virginia is for Lovers, miniature reproduction 2011, 16 x 16

Thought I'd share my all time favorite quilt one more time and let people know that there is still time to vote for it in the Alliance for American Quilts:  AlliancesViewers Choice contest (voting closes 9 p.m. eastern time on Monday Oct. 24th). It is hand appliqued (the 4 little baskets are only 1.5" tall) and hand quilted and I poured my heart and soul into this quilt. Quilt number 117 in the contest. Go to  **If that link does not work or shows survey already taken then please go to, 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.

It was a delight to recreate four of the blocks from the original quilt, which survived the Civil War in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
