This small, 15 inch square, quilt was my entry in the 2011 contest for the www.AllianceforAmericanQuilts.org
The theme was people, passions and patterns -How could I not enter?
I built this quilt top in Egypt, one week after Mubarak was ousted. I purchased a red, white and black jersey knit Egyptian flag from a man running beside our taxi in a traffic jam. I inserted photos that I took for every other pyramid. The back of the quilt has a t-shirt purchased in Tahrir Square.
I have an idea for this years theme: “Home is Where the Quilt Is” Why don’t you join me in entering. Entry and quilt must be postmarked by June 1st, 2012. I have about 20 days to get it made...as it is only an idea at this point in time. See their web site for details.
