The Alliance For American Quilts had their annual contest for small quilts again, this year. tTe deadline to send them in was June 1st. Even though I am a board member and not able to be in the contest, we all make quilts and will auction the board member's quilts off, I believe, again, at the Quilter's Take Manhattan Event in September. ( see last post ) The quilts this year had to be in the shape of a HOUSE, as the theme was "Home is Where the QUILT is." I went with an image that reminds me of my grandmother (she was a great quilter)... The Virgin Mary. It's an image that makes me think of her (my grandmother) , and it gives me a giggle... She had a very good sense of humor... and she also had a Virgin Mary in her garden with a BATHTUB around her as her shrine... Which I always found very amusing... So this image, conjures up warm happy fuzzies, when I see a Virgin Mary...
It was hard to part with her. I hope one of you who come to the QTM ( Quilter's Take Manhattan) event here in NYC, will purchase her, and give her a nice home... Everyone should have a quilted Mary... just because. ;-)
Here's a few others that I have seen around blogland. These are so fun, you must see!
