We were recently asked to co-sponsor a contest for www.allianceforamericanquilts.org. This competition celebrates The Alliance for American Quilts’ fifteen-year mission to document, preserve and share our great quilt heritage. All quilts measure 15″ x 15″ square, and reflect the quiltmaker’s personal history.

View the quilts submitted for the contest.

The third place price package (An EQ6 Prize Package from The Electric Quilt Company containing EQ6 software, three accessory books, plus two fabric CD’s, valued at $250) goes to Kathryn Wright for a gorgeous quilt called Meme’s Button Box.

Congratulations to Kathryn and all the other winners. We were honored to be a part of this endeavor.

What’s next for these beautiful quilts? Contest quilts become a donation to The Alliance for American Quilts and will be auctioned online, with 100% of the proceeds supporting the continuation of their mission.
