The Alliance for American Quilts eBay auction of the My Quilts/Our History project starts on Oct. 30th.  67 wonderful quilts will be auctioned to benefit AAQ  Here are two examples:

"Lover Never Ends" by Chandrea Kowalski is a tribute to the quiltmaker's mother and grandmother.  She applied hand shapes on top of an old quilt top of her grandmother's because as she explained, " My love of quilting was handed down."

"Bed of Roses" by Cynthia Herrman shows roses surrounded by thorns.  She says that her quilt history has been marked by 'taking chances and learning from mistakes."  In a way, the "thorns" of hard lessons have led her to create something more beautiful and satisfying.
