Only Nine Hours to Go!!

Remember this little quilt?  I made it for the Alliance of American Quilts contest entitled "Alliances".  I created this little quilt "Stars Above Us" as my entry.  All entries, after the contest judging and a little traveling schedule, are then auctioned off on eBay with all proceeds going to the Alliance of American Quilts.  I support the great work of AAQ and their mission statement:

The Alliance for American Quilts (AAQ) is a nonprofit 501c3 organization established in 1993 whose mission is to document, preserve, and share our American quilt heritage by collecting the rich stories that historic and contemporary quilts, and their makers, tell about our nation's diverse peoples and their communities.
In support of this mission, the Alliance brings together quilt makers and designers, the quilt industry, quilt scholars and teachers, and quilt collectors to further the following goals:

•to promote the understanding of the quilt as an important American grassroots art form

•to make information about quilts available to a broad public

•to educate Americans about the importance of documenting quilts and quiltmakers so that their stories will not be lost

"Stars Above Us" and others are presently on eBay for auction, with only 9 hours to go.  Check it out and make a bid.  You could win a great quilt and support the work of a vital organization preserving history and the understanding of the American Quilt.  Happy Quilting!
