Home is Where the Quilt Is

During Pt.B week Merikay and Deb R. worked on their entries to the Alliance for American Quilts' combination contest and fundraiser for 2012 "Home Is Where the Quilt Is."

See the guidelines here:

Merikay's inspiration was the stained glass window in a family home

Here's a summary of the event. Entries are due June 1st, 2012. "Contest quilts become a donation to AAQ. All entries will be auctioned with 100% of the proceeds supporting the AAQ and its projects." The Entry Fee for each quilt is $5 for Alliance members and for non members $25 for the first quilt and $10/ea for subsequent quilts. The entries must be done in an overall house shape is 15"w x 19.5".

Deb did her string quilt technique
with no piece too small to save.

You can bid on these quilts later this year. We'll keep you posted.
