Shameless Self Promotion . . .

Can I ask for your vote? Oh, silly me, of course I can ask, but will you vote for me? As Shakespeare would say, "That is the question!"

Starting today, over at the Quilting Gallery, this weekend's contest is for commemorative quilts. Do you remember the one that I made for my mom-in-law? Lots of thirties fabrics, stitcheries, applique and patchwork.

The embroidered blocks showed favorite toys from her childhood, snippets of songs that her dad and mom sang to her (and one song that she sang to torment her little brother), even the nickname she had when she was little.

The binding is scrappy - leftovers from the thirties prints that I used.

The back and the border are that thirties "bubblegum" pink. Here is the whole quilt:

I've made up my mind that if I win, the prize will be added to my 600 follower giveaway package - so please go and vote! If you have not yet read the posts that tell the stories of each block, you can read about each of them on the Tutorials and Reviews page of Lilypadquilting!  And as always, thank you for being my bloggie friends, here at the Lilypad! Big hugs!
