And off it goes!!!

Well for better or worse it's off in the mail to the Alliance for American Quilts Fundraiser... It is hard to photograph all the black on black texture on it.

This is the first of three charity pieces I intend to do this year... I also want to do a wall hanging for the CQI cancer project and one for the Alzheimer's charity quilt project that Kerry has posted about... I'll have to check the deadlines before I decide which to do first.. I have both of them pretty firmed up in my mind...




This is the back of the piece with lace on the rod pocket for hanging. I included my artist's statement (75 words or less) on the back.. Allie was a big help and answered a lot of questions... It's going off in a pizza box. It will be in a lot of quilt shows around the country as part of a traveling exhibit and then they are auctioned on e-bay in the fall with the proceeds going to AAQ.





ps.... I have not been overrun with suggestions or names for the little clip I'm searching for...

Gerry this turned out stunning! I admire the creativity that went into this, I missed something somewhere though I don't know what the "clip" is.

Oh for petes sake, I didn't go down far enough! I have no idea on the clip what it is!

Gerry, it is wonderful...you did great!
Very cool that you put your artist statement on the back too. I would have never thought of doing that.
Congratulations and thank you!
