Signed, Sealed And Ready To Deliver–Grandmother’s Garden Flower

image

I have finished my quilt for the Quilt Alliance contest and fund raiser. I am very pleased with it. Even my son said it looked like a flower when he saw it!

I will be sending it to them today and that will be the last time I will see it.

If you are a member of the QA I’d sure appreciate your vote. If you aren’t, it’s easy to join and a great way to celebrate the past and present history of quilting. Quilting is primarily a woman’s art. I know of no other woman’s art that has such a great history organization.

This link will take you to the page with membership information:

The back of the quilt with facings, a casing for a hanging rod and a custom label printed on fabric.  I always put beautiful backs on my quilts. The back, facing, and casings are also made from my hand dyed fabrics.

I printed this label on fabric and sewed it on the back.

The quilt will serve several purposes.

1. There will be a contest with fantastic prizes for the winners.

2. The quilts will tour and help raise awareness to the fact that there is a Quilt Alliance and also allow many people to see them in person.

3. The quilts will be auctioned on eBay to raise funds to support the Quilt Alliance.

If you love this quilt, you could become the proud owner sometime next fall. I will keep you aware of the dates for the auction.
