Vote, and Vote Again!

Voting for the Stitchin' Mission Dream Big, Grow Here $1,000 grant ended at midnight, August 31.

Just a reminder... please keep voting here for Stitchin' Mission to win the $1,000 grant. The monies will be used to produce a video of Stitchin' Mission free beginner quiltmaking lessons - all five lessons - so more people can learn to make quilts, and donate them for missions. Thank you for your continued support for this faith-based ministry!

Each week, the Quilting Gallery hosts a themed quilt show and competition. This week the theme is "miniatures," and for the first time, I entered a quilt. The pattern for this album sampler quilt was offered in 2004 issues of Miniature Quilts magazine. It was designed by Debra Feece. My quilt finished at 16-1/2" X 22-1/2"; each finished block is 5" X 5".
This was the first time I worked with 1930s reproduction fabrics. I hand-appliqued using a blanket stitch and embroidery floss to match the fabric, and free-motion machine-quilted it on my Bernina. I love this little quilt - the colors and the feather quilting - but it doesn't go with a single color I have in my house! As is occasionally the case with most quilters, I made it just because I wanted to!

I've been asking for a lot of votes lately, what with Stitchin' Mission and the quest win a $1,000 grant. But if you're inclined, pop over here to vote for my miniature Album Quilt. Thanks!

Leaving you with another funny that comes from Blogless Benita. This is one of my favorites.
How do you scare a man?
Sneak up behind him and start throwing rice.

Please keep voting for Stitchin' Mission, every day! Voting ends at 11:59 a.m. CORRECTION: 11:59 PM (US Central time zone) Tuesday, August 31.
