  9. You made an inspiring piece! Love that it's the classic red and white - an omaje to the past. I almost thought NY Beauty when I first saw it, but that's because I have NYB on the mind... it's the next thing after I finish off 3 other projects that are overdue.
    I'd vote for yours! Is there a way to do that?

    1. Thanks for the vote Terri! I think voting is done by alliance members only this week. All the quilts will be auctioned off beginning next week.
