The Alliance for American Quilts has announced a contest that will be of interest to crazy quilt afficionados.  It is refreshing to find a U.S.-based organization that welcomes international participation.  If you’re interested in getting involved with this combination contest and fundraiser, check out the guidelines.

The fundraiser part of this is that the quilt you enter becomes the property of the Alliance, to be auctioned on eBay after the contest ends.  The quilts are only 16 inches square, though, so parting with your creation might not be too difficult (I have a hard time letting my quilts go).  The entry fee is small, payable via Paypal, and the deadline isn’t until June 1st.   Time to pull out the scrap bag, I think.
